PREFACE. 



r I ^HE leading aim of this work is to aid in congregational singing 
It is well known that books on a similar plan have alread} 
come into general use in other denominations, and have been 
found to be of great advantage in increasing the interest of public 
worship ; and a desire for a hymn and tune book expressly adapted 
to our wants and tastes has been growing more and more urgent, 
till it seemed a clear case both of duty and interest for the Associa- 
tion to assume the task of meeting it. 

The book is not the expression of any hostility to choir music. 
On the contrary, it has been desired to make it, as far as possible, an 
acceptable collection of the most approved music for choir use ; but 
with the hope, that it will promote a happy and successful union of 
choir and congregation, in at least a part of this pleasant portion 
of religious service. 

Even if we had been possessed of a collection of hymns gene- 
rally recognized as a denominational standard, the nature of this 
work would have compelled an entire re-arrangement. In the 
absence of any such generally received collection, it seemed obvi- 
ously best to make a new one, with more attention to the fitness 
of words for musical use than is generally given when only hymns 
are thought of. 

With this reference to musical use as the foremost consideration, 
an endeavor has been made to bring together a collection of hymns 



IV PREFACE. 



as far as possible representing the very various tastes and tendencies 
of religious thought among us. No especial effort has been made to 
gather new material. No theory has been followed as to changes of 
text. But the aim has been to cull from our already familiar and 
accepted wealth of sacred poetry that portion which is best adapted 
for musical use, and to follow that reading which seemed on the 
whole to be the best in each particular case. 

The number of hymns is a medium between the extremes desired 
by different persons : some considering it an object to reduce the 
number to five hundred, or even less ; others as earnestly approving 
an extension considerably beyond the number inserted. 

In the arrangement of the hymns, the natural order of topics has 
been followed, as far as the need of grouping similar metres did not 
compel a departure from it. This was judged preferable to the 
more usual course of making the order of the hymns wholly subor- 
dinate to the musical adaptation. 

In respect to a class of hymns addressed to Christ, as to the 
propriety of which there are considerable differences of opinion 
among us, the rule followed has been inclusive rather than exclusive : 
to insert hymns expressive of the highest standard of Christian faith, 
and ascribing to the Saviour all that is rightfully implied in his 
mediatorship and his own solemn assertions, — "I and my Father are 
one ; " and " he that honoreth the Son honoreth the Father." 

Those portions have been made most full which afford the 
material for devout enjoyment in all religious services, in preference 
to extending the number of occasional hymns, which are less often 
available, and more likely to grow obsolete by the change of the 
special circumstances that give tone and a transient interest to their 
thought or sentiment. 

Our thanks are due to the authors and publishers for the kind 
permission given to use selections from Miss H. M. Kimball's volume 



PREFACE. 



of hymns, from Whittier's " Tent on the Beach," and from the 
K Hymns of the Spirit." Also to the compiler and publishers of 
"Elim, or Hymns of Holy Refreshment." From members of our 
own fellowship we have received many courtesies in the permission 
to use their works, original and selected, to which much of what is 
most valuable in this collection is due. 

In selecting the tunes, no fixed rule has been followed. The old 
and long familiar have been generally preferred, but not to the 
exclusion of more recent compositions, when these approved them- 
selves as well adapted for the object of the work. While the aim 
has been to promote a higher taste, it has not been assumed to be the 
function of this book to correct bad taste, or to compel the exclusive 
use of music scientifically correct, but to put into an available form 
the best selection of tunes actually known and approved among us. 

In arranging the tunes, it has been the usual course to place 
two of similar metre on the pages facing each other, and of such a 
kind that in some respect one should be the complement of the other ; 
an old tune facing a newer one ; a simpler, one more difficult ; a 
quieter, one more lively, &c, so as to allow of more freedom of 
choice, and to extend the range of tunes available for congregational 
use. 

The chants, with a few exceptions, are intended to supply music 
for the selections introduced in the Liturgy, leaving it open to choirs 
to substitute other music of a richer or more difficult order, accord- 
ing to their ability and taste. 

A special business arrangement has been made for the use of 
tunes of which Messrs. Mason Brothers are owners of the copy- 
right ; and it is to be understood, that all tunes taken from their 
publications are used by their permission. A similar arrangement 
has been made for the use of tunes from the collections published by 
O. Ditson & Co., with whose kind consent also free resort has 



VI PREFACE. 



been had to the rich stores of Charles Zeuner's music, of most of 
which this firm is proprietor and publisher. Acknowledgments 
are due also to the editors of several of these collections, for their 
kind assent to such use of their own compositions ; and to the pro- 
prietors of the "National Church Harmony," for the use of "Wood- 
land," and other tunes from that collection. 

A few words may be allowed here respecting the conditions of 
success in congregational singing. The first is a hearty and devout 
spirit in the people, rendering them alive to the object of the exer- 
cise, and leading to a general participation in it. The second, and 
hardly less indispensable, is practice. Choirs do not expect to sing 
well without careful practice; why should a congregation? Some 
regularly organized plan to secure general musical culture, and 
stated rehearsals, should be a part of the working apparatus of each 
church. It will conduce much to its success also, if the book is made 
a familiar companion in the home circle, for which it is well 
adapted. It is also well to have a number of practised and able 
singers so grouped in the church, whether as a choir or in a central 
part of the room, that they may serve as leaders, and give assurance 
to other and less skilful singers. 

Where such efforts are not made, congregational singing is very 
likely to run out into the lifeless and at last tedious repetition of a 
very few tunes, which, though they may be the best, become stale 
and repulsive by such disproportioned and hard usage; so that both 
the music and the worship suffer wrong. For this reason, it is desir- 
able that the general practice should be to use with each hymn one 
of the tunes which accompany it, on the same or opposite page, 
though this is not a necessary result of the plan of the book. 

It is devoutly hoped that this work, which has been prepared with 
great labor and expense, may add to the enjoyment of our Christian 
worship both at church and at home ; may quicken, warm, and 



PREFACE. Vii 



elevate the feelings ; and pour into all hearts new tides of joy and 
gladness in the worship of the all-wise and good Father ; or, if so 
need be, exercise a soothing and comforting influence in the sea- 
sons of sorrow. With this hope, it is commended to the blessing of 
God, whose high praises it is the noblest privilege of man to sound 
forth.

1. Praise to our Creator. Ps. 100. Watts. 

1 Before Jehovah's awful throne, 
Ye nations, bow with sacred joy ; 
Know that the Lord is God alone ; 
He can create, and he destroy. 

2 His sovereign power, without our aid, 
Made us of clay, and formed us men ; 
And when, like wandering sheep, we 

strayed, 
He brought us to his fold again. 

3 We are his people, we his care, 
Our souls and all our mortal frame : 
What lasting honors shall we rear, 
Almighty Maker, to thy name ! 

4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful 

songs ; 
High as the heavens our voices raise ; 
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, 
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 



5 Wide as the world is thy command, 
Vast as eternity thy love ; 
Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand, 
When rolling years shall cease to move. 



£• The House of God SALISBURY COL. 

1 Lo, God is here ! let us adore, 
And humbly bow before his face : 
Let all within us feel his power, 
Let all within us seek his grace. 

2 Lo, God is here ! him day and night 
United choirs of angels sing ; 

To him, enthroned above all height, 
Heaven's host their noblest homage bring. 

3 Being of beings ! may our praise 
Thy courts with grateful fragrance fill : 
Still may we stand before thy face, 
Still hear and do thy sovereign will.

Solemn Invocation. Anonymous. 

1 Come, thou Almighty King ! 
Help us thy name to sing ; 

Help us to praise ! 
Father all-glorious, 
O'er all victorious, 
Come and reign over us, 

Ancient of Days ! 

2 Come, thou all-gracious Lord, 
By heaven and earth adored ! 

Our prayer attend ! 
Come, and thy children bless ; 
Give thy good word success ; 
Make thine own holiness 

On us descend. 

3 Never from us depart ; 
Rule thou in every heart, 

Hence, evermore. 
Thy sovereign majesty 
May we in glory see, 
And to eternity 

Love and adore

Let there be Light. 



Marriott 



1 Tnou, whose Almighty word 
Chaos and darkness heard, 

And took their flight ! 
Hear us, we humbly pray ; 
And, where the Gospel day 
Sheds not its glorious ray, 

Let there be light. 

2 Thou, who didst come to bring, 
On thy redeeming wing, 

Healing and sight ! 
Health to the sick in mind, 
Light to the inly blind, 
Oh now, to all mankind, 

Let there be light ! 

3 Descend thou from above, 
Spirit of truth and love, — 

Speed on thy flight ! 
Move o'er the waters' face, 
Spirit of hope and grace, 
And, in earth's darkest place, 

Let there be light !

O. P«5/tc TFbrsAtp. Tate & Brady. 

1 Oh come ! loud anthems let us sing, 
Loud thanks to our Almighty King ; 
For we our voices high should raise, 
When our salvation's Rock we praise. 

2 Into his presence let us haste, 
To thank him for his favors past ; 
To him address, in joyful songs, 
The praise that to his name belongs. 

3 Oh let us to his courts repair, 
And bow with adoration there ; 
With joy and fear, devoutly all 
Before the Lord, our Maker, fall ! 



Breviary. 



D. Creator Spirit. 

1 Oh come, Creator Spirit blest ! 
Within these souls of thine to rest ; 
Come, with thy grace and heavenly aid, 
To fill the hearts which thou hast made. 

2 Come, Holy Spirit ! now descend ; 
Most blessed gift which God can send ; 
Thou Fire of Love, and Fount of Life ! 
Consume our sins, and calm our strife. 



3 With patience firm and purpose high 
The weakness of our flesh supply ; 
Kindle our senses from above, 
And make our hearts o'erflow with love. 



The Lord">s Day. 



Newton 



1 How welcome to the soul, when pressed 
With six days 1 noise antf care and toil, 
Is the returning day of rest, 

Which hides us from the world awhile ! 

2 How happy they whose lot is cast 
Where Christ invites the weary yet ! 
They find their sorrows quickly past, 
And all their burdens soon forget. 

3 Though pinched with poverty at home, 
With sharp afflictions daily fed, 

It makes amends, if they can come 
To God's own house for heavenly bread. 

4 We thank thee for thy day, O Lord ! 
And here thy promised presence seek : 
Open thy hand with blessings stored. 
And give us manna for the week.

Call to Worship. Ps. 95. Watts 



1 Come, sound his praise abroad, 
And hymns of glory sing ; 

Jehovah is the sovereign God, 
The universal King. 

2 He formed the deeps unknown ; 
He gave the seas their bound ; 

The watery worlds are all his own, 
And all the solid ground. 

3 Come, worship at his throne, 
Come, bow before the Lord : 

We are his work, and not our own ; 
He formed us by his word. 

4 To-day attend his voice, 
Nor dare provoke his rod ; 

Come like the people of his choice, 
And own your gracious God. 



*J. Enjoyment in Worship. Spirit of the Psalms. 

1 Sweet is the task, O Lord ! 
Thy glorious acts to sing, 

To praise thy name, and hear thy word, 
And grateful offerings bring. 

2 Sweet, at the dawning hour, 
Thy boundless love to tell ; 

And, when the night- wind shuts the flower, 
Still on the theme to dwell. 

3 Sweet, on this day of rest, 
To join, in heart and voice ; 

With those who love and serve thee best. 
And in thy name rejoice. 

4 To songs of praise and joy 
Be every sabbath given, 

That such may be our blest employ 
Eternally in heaven !

The Sabbath welcomed. 



Watts. 



1 Welcome, sweet day of rest, 
That saw the Lord arise ! 

Welcome to this reviving breast, 
And these rejoicing eyes ! 

2 The King himself, comes near, 
And feasts his saints to-day ; 

Here may we sit, and see him here, 
And love and praise and pray. 

3 One day amid the place 

Where Christ, my Lord, has been, 
Ts sweeter than ten thousand days 
Of pleasurable sin. 

4 My willing soul would stay 
In such a frame as this, 

And sit and sing herself away 
To everlasting bliss. 



11. 



Praise. 



Montgomery. 



1 Staxd up, and bless the Lord, 
Ye people of his choice ; 

Stand up, and bless the Lord your God, 
With heart and soul and voice. 

2 Though high above all praise, 
Above all blessing high, 

Who would not fear his holy name, 
And laud and magnify ? 

3 Oh for the living flame, 
From his own altar brought, 

To touch our lips, our minds inspire, 
And raise to heaven our thought ! 

4 Stand up, and bless the Lord ; 
The Lord your God adore ; 

Stand up, and bless his glorious name, 
Henceforth, for evermore.

Surrounding the Mercy Seat. J. Taylor 



,13. 



1 Far from mortal cares retreating, 

Sordid hopes and fond desires, 
Here, our willing footsteps meeting, 

Every heart to heaven aspires. 
From the Fount of glory beaming, 

Light celestial cheers our eyes ; 
Mercy from above proclaiming, 

Peace and pardon from the skies. 

2 Who may share this great salvation ? ■ 

Every pure and humble mind ; 
Every kindred, tongue, and nation, 

From the dross of guilt refined : 
Blessings all around bestowing, 

God withholds his care from none ; 
Grace and mercy ever flowing 

From the fountain of his throne. 

3 Every stain of guilt abhorring, 

Firm and bold in virtue's cause ; 
Still thy Providence adoring, 

Faithful subjects to thy laws, — 
Lord ! with favor still attend us, 

Bless us with thy wondrous love ; 
Thou, our sun and shield, defend us : 

All our hope is from above. 



Divine Love. 



Wesley's Col 



1 Love divine, all love excelling, 

Joy of heaven, to earth come down ; 
Fix in us thy humble dwelling, 

All thy faithful mercies crown. 
Father ! thou art all compassion, — 

Pure, unbounded love thou art ; 
Visit us with thy salvation, 

Enter every longing heart. 

2 Breathe, oh breathe thy loving Spirit 

Into every troubled breast ; 
Let us all in thee inherit, 

Let us find, thy promised rest. 
Come, almighty to deliver,

"Holy, holy, holy," singing, 
"Lord of hosts, the Lord most High ! "

Sabbath Morning 



Axo>-Yiious. 



1 Welcome, welcome, quiet niorninf 

Welcome is this holy day ; 
Now the sabbath morn, returning, 

Shows a week has passed away. 
Let us think how time is gliding ; 

Soon the longest life departs ; 
Xothing human is abiding, 

Save the love of humble hearts. 



Love to God, and to our neighbor, 

Makes our purest happiness ; 
Vain the wish, the care, the labor, 

Earth's poor trifles to possess. 
Swift our life's vain dreams are passing ; 

Like the startled dove they fly, 
Or the clouds, each other chasing 

Over yonder quiet sky. 



u Father, now one prayer we raise thee : 
Give an humble, grateful heart ; 
Never let us cease to praise thee, 
Never from thy fear depart. 



Then, when years have gathered o'er us, 
And the world is sunk in shade, 

Heaven's bright realm will rise before us ; 
There our treasure will be laid. 



16. 



" Trie Lord is in his holy temple." AKOX 

God is in his holy temple : 

Earthly thoughts, be silent now, 
While with reverence we assemble, 

And before his presence bow. 
He is with us now and ever, 

When we call upon his name, 
Aiding every good endeavor, 

Guiding every upward aim. 

God is in his holy temple, — 

In the pure and holy mind ; 
In the reverent heart and simple ; 

In the soul from sense refined : 
Then let every low emotion 

Banished far and silent be, 
And our souls in pure devotion, 

Lord, be temples worthy thee !

1 Come to the house of prayer, 
O thou afflicted ! come ; 

The God of peace shall meet thee there ; 
He makes that house his home. 

2 Come to the house of praise, 
Ye who are happy now ; 

In sweet accord your voices raise, 
In kindred homage bow. 

3 Ye young, before his throne, 
Come, bow ; your voices raise ; 

Let not your hearts his praise disown 
Who gives the power to praise. 

4 Thou, whose benignant eye 
In mercy looks on all ; 

Who seest the tear of misery, 
And hear'st the mourner's call, — 

5 Up to thy dwelling-place 
Bear our frail spirits on, 

Till they outstrip time's tardy pace, 
And heaven on earth be won.

The prayer we offer now ! 

Thy name be hallowed far and near, 
To thee all nations bow. 

2 Thy kingdom come ; thy will 
On earth be done in love, 

As saints and seraphim fulfil 
Thy perfect law above. 

3 Our daily bread supply, 
While by thy word we live ; 

The guilt of our iniquity 
Forgive as we forgive. 

4 From dark temptation's power 
Our feeble hearts defend ; 

Deliver in the evil hour, 
And guide us to the end. 

5 Thine, then, for ever be 
Glory and power divine ; 

The sceptre, throne, and majesty 
Of heaven and earth are thine.

Let thy bright beam arise ; 

Dispel the sorrow from our minds, 
The darkness from our eyes. 

2 Convince us all of sin ; 
Lead us to thine abode ; 

And to our wondering view reveal 
Thy mercies, O our God ! 

3 Revive our drooping faith, 
Our doubts and fears remove, 

And kindle in our breasts the flame 
Of never-dying love. 

4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart, 

To sanctify the soul, 
To pour fresh life in every part, 
And new-create the whole. 

5 Dwell, Spirit ! in our hearts ; 
Our minds from bondage free ; 

Then shall we know, and praise, and love, 
And rise at length to thee.

Within thy courts, we bend, 

And bless thy love, and own thy power, 
Our Father and our Friend ! 

3 But thou art not alone 
In courts by mortals trod, 

Nor only is the day thine own 
When man draws near to Gcd. 

4 Thy temple is the arch 
Of yon unmeasured sky ; 

Thy sabbath, the stupendous march 
Of grand eternity.

Dawn on thy servants' sight ; 

And purer worship may we pay 
In heaven's unclouded light !

1 Lord, before thy presence come, 
Bow we down with holy fear : 
Call our erring footsteps home, 
Let us feel that thou art near. 

2 Wandering thoughts and languid powers 
Come not where devotion kneels ; 

Let the soul expand her stores, 
Glowing with the joy she feels. 

3 At the portals of thine house, 
We resign our earth-born cares : 
Nobler thoughts our souls engross, 
Songs of praise and fervent prayers.

1 In this peaceful house of prayer, 
Stronger faith, O God ! we seek ; 
Here we bring each earthly care, 
Thou the strengthening message speak. 

2 In our greatest trials we, 

Calm, through thee, the way have trod : 
In the smallest, may we feel 
Thou art still our Helper-God ! 



3 Of thy presence and thy love 
We more steadfast feeling need, 
Till the high and holy thought 
Hallow every simplest deed. 

4 In our work and in our homes 
Christian men we fain would be ; 
Learn how daily life affords 
Noblest opportunity.

While to thee our prayers ascend, 
Let thine ear in love attend.

Tune our lips, inspire our tongue : 
Then our joyful souls shall bless

3 While thy word is heard with a vie, 
While we tremble at thy law, 

Let thy gospel's wondrous love 
Every doubt and fear remove.

To those bright realms above, 
That glorious temple in the skies, 
Where dwells eternal love. 

2 Before the awful throne we bow 

Of heaven's Almighty King : 

Here we present the solemn vow, 

And hymns of praise we sing.

Our filial duty pay : 
Thy service, unconstrained and free, 
Conducts to endless day.

No fear nor doubt shall enter here :

2 We will not bring divided hearts 

To worship at thy shrine ; 
But each unworthy thought departs, 
And leaves this temple thine. 

3 Then sleep to-day, tormenting cares, 

Of earth and folly born ; 
Ye shall not dim the light that streams 
From this celestial morn.

To feel your harsh control ; 
Ye shall not violate this day, 
The sabbath of the soul.

Oh let thy favor crown our days, 
And all their round be thine ! 

2 Did we not raise our hands to thee, 

Our hands might toil in vain : 
Small joy success itself could give, 
If thou thy love restrain. 

3 With thee let every week begin, 

With thee each day be spent, 
For thee each fleeting hour improved, 
Since each by thee is lent. 

4 Thus cheer us through this desert road, 

Till all our labors cease, 
And heaven refresh our weary souls 
With everlasting peace.

1 Another six days' work is done ; 
Another sabbath is begun : 
Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest, 
Improve the day which God hath blest. 

2 Oh that our thoughts and thanks may rise, 
As grateful incense, to the skies, 

And draw from heaven that sweet repose 
Which none but he that feels it knows ! 

3 This heavenly calm within the breast 
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest, 
Which for the Church of God remains. 
The end of cares, the end of pains. 

I In holy duties let the day, 
In holy pleasures, pass away : 
How sweet a sabbath thus to spend, 
In hope of one that ne'er shall end !

Great God ! the followers of thy Son 
We bow before thy mercy-seat,

And pour our wishes at thy feet. 



2 Oh grant thy blessing here to-day ! 
Oh give thy people joy and peace ! 
The tokens of thy love display, 
And favor that shall never cease. 

3 We seek the truth which Jesus brought ; 
His path of light we long to tread : 
Here be his holy doctrines taught, 

And here their purest influence shed. 

4 May faith and hope and love abound ; 
Our sins and errors be forgiven ; 
And we, in thy great day, be found 
Children of God and heirs of heaven !

And, in God's service truly blest, 
Forget the world, its joys, its woes !

1 Lord of the sabbath, hear our vows, 
On this thy day, in this thy house ; 
And own, as grateful sacrifice, 

The songs which from thy churches rise. 

2 Thine earthly sabbaths, Lord, we love ; 
But there's a nobler rest above : 

To that our longing souls aspire, 
With earnest hope and strong desire. 

3 No more fatigue, no more distress, 
Nor sin nor death shall reach the place ; 
No groans to mingle with the songs 
Which warble from immortal tongues ; 



4 No rude alarms of raging foes ; 
No cares to break the long repose ; 
No midnight shade, no clouded sun, — 
But sacred, high, eternal noon. 

5 O long-expected day ! begin ; 
Dawn on these realms of woe and sin 
Fain would we leave this weary road, 
And sleep in death to rest with God.

The Sacrifice of the Heart. Mrs. Baebacld. 



1 Whex, as returns this solemn day, 
Man comes to meet his maker, God, 
What rites, what honors, shall he pay ? 
How spread his sovereign's praise abroad ? 

2 From marble domes and gilded spires 
Shall curling clouds of incense rise, 
And gems and gold and garlands deck 
The costly pomp of sacrifice ? 

3 Vain, sinful man ! creation's Lord 
Thy golden offerings well may spare ; 
But give thy heart, and thou shalt find 
Here dwells a God who heareth prayer.

TCO. Morning or Evening. Christian Psalmist. 

1 As every day, thy mercy spares, 
Will bring its trials or its cares, 
O Father ! till my life shall end, 
Be thou my counsellor and friend ; 
Teach me thy statutes all divine, 
And let thy will be always mine. 

2 When each day's scenes and labors close, 
And wearied nature seeks repose, 
With pardoning mercy, richly blest, 
Guard me, my Father, while I rest ; 
And, as each morning sun shall rise, 

Oh lead me onward to the skies ! 

3 And at my life's last setting sun, 
My conflicts o'er, my labors done, 
Father, thine heavenly radiance shed, 
To cheer and bless my dying bed ; 
And from death's gloom my spirit raise, 
To see thy lace and sing thy praise. 

<±y. Spiritual Needs. C. WESLEY. 

1 I want the spirit of power within, 
Of love and of a healthful mind, 
Of power to conquer every sin, 
Of love to God and all mankind ; 



Of health that pain and death defies, 
Most vigorous when the body dies. 

Oh that the Comforter would come. 
Nor visit as a transient guest, 
But fix in me his constant home, 
And keep possession of my breast ; 
And make my soul his loved abode, 
The temple of indwelling God !

Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day." 

Episcopal Co» 



1 Great God, this sacred day of thine, 
Demands the soul's collected powers: 
With joy to thee we now resign 
These solemn, consecrated hours : 

O may our souls, adoring, own 
The grace that calls us to thy throne 

2 All-seeing God, thy piercing eye 
Can every secret thought explore : 
May worldly cares our bosoms fly, 
And, where thou art, intrude no more ! 
Oh may thy grace our spirits move, 
And fix our minds on things above !

3 Thy Spirit's powerful aid impart ; 
And bid thy words, with life divine, 
Engage the ear, and warm the heart : 
Then shall the day indeed be thine ; 
Our souls shall then adoring own 
The grace that calls us to thy throne.

The Gate of Heaven. E. H. Chapin. 



Our Father, — God ! not face to face 
May mortal sense commune with thee, 
Nor lift the curtains of that place 
Where dwells thy secret majesty. 
Yet wheresoe'er our spirits bend 
In reverent faith and humble prayer, 
Thy promised blessing will descend, 
And we shall find thy spirit there. 

Lord, be the spot, where now we meet, 
An open gateway into heaven ; 
Here may we sit at Jesus' feet, 
And feel our deepest sins forgiven. 
Here may desponding care look up, 
And sorrow lay its burden down ; 
Or learn of him to drink the cup, 
To bear the cross, and win the crown. 



%)&» The Sabbath. Ch. Psalmod 

1 Safely through another week 

God has brought us on our way : 
Let us now a blessing seek, 

Waiting in his courts to-day, — 
Day of all the week the best, 
Emblem of eternal rest. 

2 While we seek supplies of grace, 

Through the dear Redeemer's name, 
Show thy reconciling face ; 

Take away our sin and shame : 
From our worldly cares set free, 
May we rest this day in thee ! 

3 Here we come thy name to praise * 

Let us feel thy presence near ; 
May thy glory meet our eyes, 

While we in thy house appear ! 
Here afford us, Lord, a taste 
Of our everlasting feast. 

4 May the gospel's joyful sound 

Conquer sinners, comfort saints ; 
Make the fruits of grace abound, 

Bring relief from all complaints ! 
Thus let all our sabbaths prove, 
Till we join the Church above.

OO. "Early will I seek thee." Ps. 63. Watts. 

1 Early, my God ! without delay, 

I haste to seek thy face ; 
My thirsty spirit faints away, 
Without thy cheering grace. 

2 So pilgrims on the scorching sand, 

Beneath a burning sky, 
Long for a cooling stream at hand ; 
And they must drink or die. 

3 Not life itself, with all its joys, 

Can my best passions move, 
Or raise so high my cheerful voice, 
As thy forgiving love. 

4 Thus, till my last expiring day, 

I'll bless my God and King ; 
Thus will I lift my hands to pray, 
And tune my lips to sing. 

jl. Invoking GoWs Aid. II. Ware, Jr. 

1 Father in heaven, to thee my heart 

Would lift itself in prayer : 
Drive from my soul each earthly thought, 
And show thy presence there. 



2 Each moment of my life renews 

The mercies of my Lord ; 
Each moment is itself a gift 
To bear me on to God. 

3 Oh help me break the galling chains 

This world has round me thrown, 
Each passion of my heart subdue, 
Each darling sin disown ! 

4 O Father ! kindle in my breast 

A never-dying flame 
Of holy love, of grateful trust 
In thine almighty name.

1 When the worn spirit wants repose. 

And sighs her God to seek, 
How sweet to hail the evening's close 
That ends the weary week ! 

2 How sweet to hail the early dawn 

That opens on the sight, 
When first that soul-reviving morn 
Beams its new rays of light !

A shoreless, soundless sea, 
Wherein at last our souls must fall,

One soft hand blinds our eyes, 
The other leads us safe and slow, —

3 And though we turn us from thy face, 

And wander wide and long, 
Thou hold'st us still in thine embrace, 
love of God most strong !

The toil-worn frame and mind,

1 O God ! whose dread and dazzling brow 

Love never yet forsook, 
On those who seek thy presence now, 
In deep compassion look ; 

2 For many a frail and erring heart 

Is in thy holy sight, 
And feet too willing to depart 
From the plain way of right. 

3 Yet, pleased the humble prayer to hear, 

And kind to all that live, 
Thou, when thou seest the contrite tear 
Art ready to forgive. 

4 Lord, aid us with thy heavenly grace, 

Our truest bliss to find ; 
In mercy view our erring race, 
So feeble and so blind.

1 O Source divine, and Life of all. 
The Fount of being's wondrous sea ! 
Thy depth would every heart appall, 
That saw not Love supreme in thee. 

2 We shrink before thy vast abyss, 
Where worlds on worlds unnumbered 

brood ; 
We know thee truly but in this, — 
That thou bestowest all our good. 

3 And so, 'mid boundless time and space, 
Oh grant us still in thee to dwell, 
And through the ceaseless web to trace 
Thy presence working all things well ! 

4 Nor let thou life's delightful play 
Thy truth's transcendent vision hide ; 
Nor strength and gladness lead astray 
From thee, our nature's only guide. 

5 Bestow on every joyous thrill 

A deeper tone of reverent awe ; 
Make pure thy children's erring will, 
And teach their hearts to love thy law.

1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy daily stage of duty ruu ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 Thy precious time, misspent, redeem ; 
Each present day thy last esteem ; 
Improve thy talent with due care ; 
For the great day thyself prepare. 

3 In conversation be sincere ; 

Keep conscience, as the noontide, clear; 
Think how the all-seeing God thy ways 
And all thy secret thoughts surveys. 

4 Lord, I my vows to thee renew : 
Scatter my sins like morning dew ; 
Guard my first springs of thought and will 
And with thyself my spirit fill. 

5 Direct, control, suggest, this day, 
All I design or do or say ; 

That all my powers, with all their might, 
In thy sole glory may unite.

1 Sixg to the Lord with cheerful voice ; 
From realm to realm the notes shall 

sound, 
And heaven's exulting sons rejoice 
To bear the full hosanna round. 

2 When, starting from the shades of night, 
At dread Jehovah's high behest, 

The sun arrayed his limbs in light, 
And earth her virgin beauty drest, — 

3 Thy praise transported nature sung, 
In pealing chorus, loud and far; 
The echoing vault with rapture rung, 
And shouted every morning star. 

4 Thy praise shall fill each grateful voice, 
Shall bid the song of rapture sound ; 
And heaven's exulting sons rejoice 

To bear the full hosanna round.

We bow before our Father's face ; 
Thy grace and glory we adore, 

And learn the wonders of thy power. 

3 Here, when our spirit faints and dies, 
And conscience smarts with inward stings, 
The Sun of Righteousness shall rise, 
With healing beams beneath his wings. 

4 Father, our souls would still abide 
Within thy temple, near thy side ; 
But, if our feet must hence depart, 
Still keep thy dwelling in our heart.

DOt Morning Hymn. Episcopal Col. 

1 Now the shades of night are gone ; 
Now the morning light is come, — 
Lord, may we be thine to-day ! 
Drive the shades of sin away. 

2 Fill our souls with heavenly light, 
Banish doubt, and clear our sight ; 
In thy service, Lord, to-day, 

May we stand and watch and pray. 

3 Keep our haughty passions bound ; 
Save us from our foes around ; 
Going out and coming in, 

Keep us safe from every sin. 



2 Should it be with clouds o'ercast, — 
Clouds of sorrow gathering fast, 
Thou, who givest light divine, 
Shine within me, Lord, oh shine ! 

3 Show me, if I tempted be, 
How to find all strength in thee, 
And a perfect triumph win 
Over every bosom sin. 

4 Keep my feet from secret snares, 
Keep mine eyes, O God ! from tears 
Every step thy love attend, 

And my soul from death defend. 



4 When our work of life is past, 
Oh receive us then at last ; 
Night and sin will be no more, 
When we reach the heavenly shore. 

D'ob. Morning Hymn. Furness. 

1 In the morning I will pray 
For God's blessing on the day : 
What this day shall be my lot, — 
Light or darkness, — know I not.

Angel guards their vigils keep ; 
Death and danger may be near, 
Faith and love have nought to fear.

At thine altars, when we bow ? — 
Hearts, the pure, unsullied spring, 
Whence the kind affections flow ; 
Soft compassion's feeling soul, 

By the melting eye expressed ; 
Sympathy, at whose control 
Sorrow leaves the wounded breast ; 

2 Willing hands tc lead the blind, 
Bind the wounded, feed the poor ; 
Love, embracing all our kind ; 
Charity, with liberal store.

Thus the accepted offering bring, — 
Love to thee and all mankind.

And, while hearing, let thy grace

While we know, benignant King, 
That the praises which we bring 
Are a worthless offering 
Till thy blessing makes it more. 

More of truth and more of might, 
More of love and more of light, 
More of reason and of right, 
From thy pardoning grace be given. 
It can make the humblest song 
Sweet, acceptable, and strong 
As the strains the angels' throng 
Pour around the throne of heaven.

How pleasant and how fair 
The dwellings of thy love, 
Thine earthly temples, are ! 

To thine abode my heart aspires, 
With warm desires to see my God.

Where God appoints to hear !

Their constant service there ! 

They praise thee still ; and happy they 
That love the way to Zion's hill.

Till each in heaven appears :

And makes our cause his own.

And love thy sacred name ; 
No more our own, but thine, 
We triumph in thy claim.

Our souls embrace, — thy titles sing.

To worship in thy house, 
And thou attend the song, 
And smile upon their vows !

1 I love to steal awhile away 

From every cumbering care, 
And spend the hours of setting day 
In humble, grateful prayer. 

2 I love in solitude to shed 

The penitential tear, 
And all his promises to plead 
Where none but God can hear. 

3 I love to think on mercies past, 

And future good implore, 
And all my cares and sorrows cast 
On him whom I adore. 

4 I love by faith to take a view 

Of brighter scenes in heaven ; 
The prospect doth my strength renew. 
While here by tempests driven. 

5 Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er, 

May its departing ray 
Be calm as this impressive hour, 
And lead to endless day !

To thee, and thee alone, belong 
All worship, love, and praise. 

2 In trouble's dark and stormy hour 

Thine ear hath heard our prayer ; 
And graciously thine arm of power 
Hath saved us from despair. 

3 And thou, O ever gracious Lord ! 

Wilt keep thy promise still, 
If, meekly hearkening to thy word, 
We seek to do thy will. 

4 Led by the light thy grace imparts, 

Ne'er may we bow the knee 
To idols, which our wayward hearts 
Set up instead of thee ! 

5 So shall thy choicest gifts, O Lord ! 

Thy faithful people bless ; 
For them shall earth its stores afford, 
And heaven its happiness.

I O. ^1 Sabbath Morning. Anonymous. 

1 How sweet, how calm, this sabbath morn ! 

How pure the air that breathes, 
And soft the sounds upon it borne, 
And light its vapor wreaths ! 

2 It seems as if the Christian's prayer, 

For peace and joy and love, 
"Were answered by the very air 
That wafts its strain above. 

8 Let each unholy passion cease, 
Each evil thought be crushed ; 
Each anxious care that mars thy peace 
In faith and love be hushed. 



Safely conduct us, by thy grace, 
Through life's perplexing road ; 

And place us, when that journey's o'er, 
At thy right hand, O God !

Inspire our hearts with sacred love, 
And tune our lips to praise

The Ways of Wisdom. Scotch Paeaphbases. 



1 Wisdom has treasures greater far 

Than east or west unfold ; 
And her rewards more precious are 
Than is the gain of gold. 

2 In her right hand she holds to view 

A length of happy years ; 
And in her left the prize of fame 
And honor bright appears. 

3 She guides the young with innocence 

In pleasure's path to tread ; 
A crown of glory she bestows 
Upon the hoary head. 

4 According as her labors rise, 

So her rewards increase ; 
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, 
And all her paths are peace.

When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, 
Help of the helpless, oh abide with me !

Earth's joys grow dim, its glories fade away ; 
Change and decay in all around I see : 

O Thou who changest not ! abide with me. 

3 I need thy presence every passing hour; 

What but thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like thyself my guide and stay can be ? 
On to the close, O Lord ! abide with me.

1 Fadixg, still fading, the last beam is shining ; 
Father in heaven ! the day is declining ; 
Thine is the darkness, as thine is the light; 

We trust thee by day, and we trust thee by night. 
From the fall of the shade till the morning bells chime, 
Shield us from danger and guard us from crime. 
Father of mercy, oh hear thou our prayer ! 

2 Father in heaven, oh hear when we call, 
Thou, the Protector and Saviour of all ! 
Fainting and feeble, we trust in thy might; 

In doubting and darkness, thy love be our light ; 
Let us sleep on thy breast while the night taper burns, 
And wake in thine arms when the morning returns. 
Father of mercy, oh hear thou our prayer !

Evening Hymn. 



Kknn 



1 Glory to thee, my God, this night, 
For all the blessings of the light : 
Keep me, oh keep me, King of kings, 
Beneath the shadow of thy wings ! 

2 Forgive me, Lord, through thy dear Son, 
The ills which I this day have done ; 
That with the world, myself, and thee, 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 

3 Be thou my guardian while I sleep ; 
Thy watchful station near me keep ; 
My heart with love celestial fill, 

And guard me from the approach of ill. 

4 Lord, let my heart for ever share 
The bliss of thy paternal care : 

'Tis heaven on earth, 'tis heaven above, 
To see thy face and sing thy love. 

Ui. Morning or Evening Song. Watts. 

1 My God, how endless is thy love ! 
Thy gifts are every evening new ; 
And morning mercies, from above, 
Gently distil, like early dew. 



2 Thou spread'st the curtains of the night. 
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours : 
Thy sovereign word restores the light, 
And quickens all my drowsy powers. 

3 I yield my powers to thy command ; 
To thee I consecrate my days : 
Perpetual blessings from thine hand 
Demand perpetual songs of praise. 

OO. Manna. IIebkk. 

1 Thy bounteous hand with food can bless 
The bleak and barren wilderness ; 
And thou hast taught us, Lord, to pray 
For daily bread from day to day. 

2 And, oh, when through the wilds we roam, 
That part us from our heavenly home ; 
When, lost in danger, want, and woe. 
Our faithless tears begin to flow, — 

3 Do thou thy gracious comfort give, 
By which alone the soul can live ; 
And grant thy children, Lord, we pray, 
The bread of life from day to day.

1 'Tis gone, that bright and orbed blaze, 
Fast fading from our wistful gaze ; 
Yon mantling cloud has hid from sight 
The last faint pulse of quivering light. 

2 Sun of my soul, thou Saviour dear, 
It is not night if thou be near : 

Oh may no earth-born cloud arise 
To hide thee from thy servant's eyes ! 

3 When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 

4 Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without thee I dare not die.

1 How shall we praise thee, Lord of light ? 
How all thy boundless love declare ? 
The earth is veiled in shades of night, 
But heaven is open to our prayer. 



2 We would adore thee, God sublime, 
Whose power and wisdom, love and grace, 
Are greater than the round of time, 
And wider than the bounds of space. 

3 For thou art present with us here, 
As in thy glittering, high domain , 
And grateful hearts and humble fear 
Can never seek thy face in vain. 

4 Help us to praise thee, Lord of light ; 
Help us thy boundless love declare ; 
And, while we crowd thy courts to-night, 
Aid us, and hearken to our prayer.

1 O Thou true Life of all that live, 
Who dost, unmoved, all motion sway ; 
Who dost the morn and evening give, 
And through its changes guide the day, —

So may our souls no sunset see ; 
But death to us an open door 
To an eternal morning be.

An Evening Hymn. 



Watts. 



1 Thus far the Lord has led me on, 
Thus far his power prolongs my days ; 
And every evening shall make known 
Some fresh memorial of his grace. 

2 Much of my time has run to waste, 
And I, perhaps, am near my home ; 
But he forgives my follies past, 

And gives me strength for days to come. 

3 I lay my body down to sleep ; 
Peace is the pillow for my head ; 
"While well-appointed angels keep 
Their watchful stations round my bed. 

4 Faith in his name forbids my fear : 
Oh may thy presence ne'er depart ! 
And in the morning make me hear 
Thy love and kindness in my heart. 

*J\J» An Evening Hymn. Collyer. 

1 Another fleeting day is gone ; 
Slow o'er the west the shadows rise ; 
Swift the soft stealing hours have flown, 
A.nd night's dark mantle veils the skies. 



2 Another fleeting day is gone, 
Swept from the records of the year ; 
And still, with every setting sun. 
Life's fading visions disappear. 

3 Another fleeting day is gone, 
But soon a fairer shall arise, — 
A day whose never-setting sun 

Shall pour its light o'er cloudless skies. 

4 Another fleeting day is gone : 
In solemn silence rest, my soul ; 
And bow before His awful throne, 
Who bids the morn and evening roll.

\jZi» The Close of the Sabbath. EDMESTOX. 

1 Sweet is the light of sabbath eve, 
And soft the sunbeams lingering there : 
For these blest hours the world I leave, 
Wafted on wings of faith and prayer. 

2 The time how lovely and how still ! 
Peace shines and smiles on all below ; 
The plain, the stream, the wood, the hill,— 
All fair with evening's setting glow. 

3 Season of rest ! the tranquil soul 
Feels the sweet calm, and melts to love ; 
And, while these sacred moments roll, 
Faith sees a smiling heaven above. 



93. 



The Still Hour. 



1 Gently the shades of night descend ; 
Thy temple, Lord, is calm and still ; 
A thousand lamps of ether blend, 

A thousand fires that temple fill. 

2 Thou bidd'st the cares of earth depart ; 
Heaven's peace is wafted from above ; 
A sabbath stillness fills the heart, 
Devotion's calm and holy love. 



3 And man, even from the dust, may rise, 
Borne on the pinions of thy grace, 
Up to angelic mysteries, 
And find in thee his resting-place. 

t/T. Evening Prayer. BeeviAE* . 

1 O blest Creator of the light, 

Who dost the dawn from darkness bring, 
And, framing nature's depth and height, 
Didst with the new-born light begin ; 

2 Who gently blending eve with morn, 
And morn with eve, didst call them day, — 
Thick flows the flood of darkness down : 
Oh hear us as we weep and pray ! 

3 Keep thou our souls from schemes of 

crime, 
Nor guilt remorseful let them know ; 
Nor, thinking but on things of time, 
Into eternal darkness go. 

4 Teach us to knock at heaven's high door * 
Teach us the prize of life to win ; 
Teach us all evil to abhor, 

And purify ourselves within.

Evening Meditation. 



1 Softly now the light of day 
Fades upon the sight away : 
Free from care, from labor free, 
Lord, we would commune with thee. 

2 Thou, whose all-pervading eye 
Nought escapes, without, within, 
Pardon each infirmity, 

Open fault, and secret sin. 

3 When from us the light of day 
Shall on earth have passed away, 
Then, from sin and sorrow free, 
Take us, Lord, to dwell with thee. 

i/O. Sabbath Evening. 

1 Softly fades the twilight ray 
Of the holy sabbath-day ; 
Gently as life's setting sun, 
When the Christian's course is run. 

2 Night her solemn mantle spreads 
O'er the earth as daylight fades ; 
All things tell of calm repose 
At the holy sabbath's close.

3 Peace is on the world abroad : 
'Tis the holy peace of God, — 
Symbol of the peace within, 
When the spirit rests from sin.

Days of peace and joy in thee, 
Till in heaven our souls repose, 
Where the sabbath ne'er shall close I

1 For a season called to part, 
Let us now ourselves commend 
To the gracious eye and heart 
Of our ever-present Friend. 

2 Father, hear our humble prayer : 
Tender Shepherd of thy sheep, 
Let thy mercy and thy care 

All our souls in safety keep. 

3 In thy strength may we be strong , 
Sweeten every cross and pain ; 
Give us, if we live, ere long, 
Here to meet in peace again.

Down around the weary world, 
Falls the darkness ; oh how still

"Work in me as silently ; 

Veil the day's distracting sights, 
Show me heaven's eternal lights.

In the boundless realms of thought ;

Ere again we seek repose,

At thy feet we bow the knee. 



For the mercies of the day, 
For this rest upon our way, 
Thanks to thee alone be given, 
Lord of earth, and King of Heaven. 

Whilst this thorny path we tread, 
May thy love our footsteps lead ! 
When our journey here is past, 
May we rest with thee at last ! 

Let these earthly sabbaths prove 
Foretastes of our joys above, 
While their steps thy pilgrims bend 
To the rest which knows no end.

Brought the Shepherd of the sheep

What is pleasing in his sight, 
Perfect us in all his will, 

And preserve us day and night !

±UjL. Vesper Hymn. S. Longfellow. 

1 Again, as evening's shadow falls, 
We gather in these hallowed walls ; 
And vesper hymn and vesper prayer 
Rise mingling on the holy air. 

2 May struggling hearts that seek release, 
Here find the rest of God's own peace ; 
And, strengthened here by hymn and 

prayer, 
Lay down the burden and the care ! 

3 O God, our Light ! to thee we bow ; 
Within all shadows standest thou ; 
Give deeper calm than night can bring ; 
Give sweeter songs than lips can sing. 

4 Life's tumult we must meet again, 
We cannot at the shrine remain ; 
But, in the spirit's secret cell, 

May hymn and prayer for ever dwell ! 

LU^. Evening Worship. W. EL BURLKIQH. 

1 O Holy Father ! 'mid the calm 
And 6tillncss of this evening hour, 
We lift to thee our solemn psalm, 
To praise thy goodness, and thy power. 



2 For over us, and over all, 

Thy tender mercies still extend, 

Nor vainly shall thy children call 

On thee, their Father and their Friend. 

3 Kept by thy goodness through the day, 
Thanksgiving to thy name we pour ; 
Night o'er us, with its stars, — we pray 
Thy love to guard us evermore. 

4 In grief console, in gladness bless, 
In darkness guide, in sickness cheer ; 
Till, perfected in righteousness, 
Before thy throne our souls appear.

1 Ere to the world again we go, 

Its pleasures, cares, and idle show, 
Thy grace once more, O God ! we crave, 
From folly and from sin to save. 

2 Oh may the influence of this day 
Long as our memory with us stay, 
And as an angel guardian prove, 
To guide us to our home above !

Through this lonely vale of tears,

Glory begun below : 

Celestial fruits, on earthly ground, 
From faith and hope may grow. 

4 Then let our songs abound, 
And every tear be dry : 

We're marching thro 1 Immanuel's ground, 
To fairer worlds on high. 

\-ZiO* God working in the Soul. Ch. Psalmist. 

1 'Tis God the spirit leads 

In paths before unknown : 
The work to be performed is ours ; 
The strength is all his own 



2 Assisted by his grace, 
We still pursue our way ; 

And hope at last to reach the prize, 
Secure in endless day. 

3 'Tis he that works to will ; 
'Tis he that works to do : 

His is the power by which we act ; 
His be the glory too. 



The Fountain of Living Waters. 



Jer. ii. 13. 

GUYOM 



124. 

1 The fountain in its source 
No drought of summer fears ; 
The farther it pursues its course 
The nobler it appears. 



} But shallow cisterns yield 

A scanty, short supply : 
The morning sees them amply filled ; 

At evening they are dry. 

5 The cisterns I forsake, 
O Fount of Life ! for thee ; 

My thirst with living waters slake, 
And drink eternity.

Evening Prayer. Hyilks or the SriBiT. 



1 As darker, darker, fall around 

The shadows of the night, 
We gather here, with hymn and prayer, 
To seek the Eternal Light. 

2 Father in heaven, to thee are known 

Our many hopes and fears, 
Our heavy weight of mortal toil, 
Our bitterness of tears. 

3 We pray thee for our absent ones, 

Who have been with us here ; 
And in our secret heart we name 
The distant and the dear. 

4 For weary eyes, and aching hearts, 

And feet that from thee rove, 
The sick, the poor, the tried, the fallen, 
We pray thee, God of love. 

5 We pray thee for the little bark 

Just launched upon life's sea : 
Are not the depths of parents' love, 
O Father ! known to thee ? 



6 We bring to thee our hopes and fears, 
And at thy footstool lay ; 
And, Father, thou who lovest all 
Wilt hear us as we pray.

The Day. 



S. D. Robbiho. 



1 Thou art my morning, God of light; 

Thy day-spring wakes my soul ; 
Thy radiant smile subdues the night. 
And shall the day control. 

2 And thou my noon, O Father ! art ; 

Thy central warmth I own : 
The glowing fulness of my heart 
Pulses from thee alone. 

3 And thou my evening : let me rest. 

When life declines, in thee ; 
As sinks the sun into the west, 
Thou wilt my guardian be. 

4 A brighter morning round thy throne 

Shall dawn with light more fair : 
Father, I trust in thee alone ; 
Thou wilt awake me there

Rise, my Soul." Rippon's Col. 



Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings, — 

Thy better portion trace ; 
Rise, from transitory things, 

Towards heaven thy native place : 
Sun and moon and stars decay, 

Time shall soon this earth remove ; 
Rise, my soul, and haste away 

To seats prepared above. 

Rivers to the ocean run, 

Nor stay in all their course ; 
Fire ascending seeks the sun, — 

Both speed them to their source : 
So a soul that's born of God 

Pants to view his glorious face, 
Upward tends to his abode, 

To rest in his embrace. 



128. 



Quiet Religion. 



Wesleyan. 



Open, Lord, my inward ear, 
And bid my heart rejoice ; 

Bid my quiet spirit hear 
The comfort of thy voice : 



Never in the whirlwind found, 
Or where earthquakes rock the place, — 
Still and silent is the sound, 
The whisper of thy grace. 

2 From the world of sin and noise 

And hurry, I withdraw ; 
For the small and inward voice 

I wait with humble awe : 
Silent I am now and still, 
Dare not in thy presence move ; 
To my waiting soul reveal 

The secret of thy love. 



129. 



He Careth for Thee. 



Wesley 



God shall bless thy going out, 

Shall bless thy coming in ; 
Kindly compass thee about, 

Till thou art saved from sin. 
Lean upon thy Father's breast ; 

It is he thy spirit keeps : 
Rest in him, securely rest ; 

Thy Guardian never sleeps.

God Self-existent. 



Walker's Col. 



1 Aix-powerful, self-existent God, 
Who all creation dost sustain, 
Thou wast, and art, and art to come, 
And everlasting is thy reign. 

2 Fixed and eternal as thy days, 
Each glorious attribute divine, 
Through ages infinite shall still 
With undiminished lustre shine. 

3 Fountain of being, Source of good, 
Immutable thou dost remain ; 

Nor can the shadow of a change 
Obscure the glories of thy reign. 

4 Earth may with all her powers dissolve, 
If such the great Creator's will ; 

But thou for ever art the same. 
I am is thy memorial still. 



m Eternity and Sovereignty of God. P». 93. 

• Tate & Bbadt. 

1 With glory clad, with strength arrayed, 
The Lord, that o'er all nature reigns, 
The world's foundations strongly laid, 
And the vast fabric still sustains. 

2 How surely stablished is thy throne, 
Which shall no change or period see ! 
For thou, O Lord ! and thou alone, 
Art God from all eternity. 

3 Thy promise, Lord, is ever sure ; 

And they that in thy house would dwell, 
That happy station to secure, 
Must still in holiness excel. 

J_»)—j. Eternity of God. Spirit of the Psalms. 

1 Ere mountains reared their forms sub- 
lime, 
Or heaven and earth in order stood ; 
Before the birth of ancient time ; 
From everlasting, — thou art God.

2 A thousand ages, in their flight, 
With thee are as a fleeting day : 
Past, present, future, to thy sight 
At once their various scenes display. 

8 But our brief life's a shadowy dream, 
A passing thought that soon is o'er ; 
That fades with morning's earliest beam, 
And fills the musing mind no more. 

4 To us, Lord ! the wisdom give 
Each passing moment so to spend, 
That we at length with thee may live 
Where life and bliss shall never end. 



jOO Praise to the only true God. Ps. 86. 

1-OQ, Brown 

1 Eternal God, Almighty Cause 

Of earth and seas and worlds unknown, 
All things are subject to thy laws ; 
All things depend on thee alone. 

2 Thy glorious being singly stands, 
Of all within itself possessed : 
Controlled by none are thy commands ; 
Thou in thyself alone art blessed 



3 Worship to thee alone belongs, 
Worship to thee alone we give ; 
Thine be our hearts, and thine our songs, 
And to thy glory may we live. 

1 Ol. Seeing the Invisible. Doddbidgx. 

1 Eternal and immortal King, 

Thy peerless splendors none can bear, 
But darkness veils seraphic eyes, 
When God with all his glory's there. 

2 Yet faith can pierce the awful gloom, 
The great Invisible can see ; 

And with its tremblings mingle joy, 
In fixed regard, great God, to thee. 

3 Oh ever conscious to my heart, 
Witness to its supreme desire ! 
Behold ! it presseth on to thee, 
For it hath caught the heavenly fire. 

4 This one petition would it urge, — 
To bear thee ever in its sight ; 

In life, in death, in worlds unknown, 
Its only portion and deb'ght.

Man frail, and God eternal. 



Ps. 90. 

Watts. 



1 Our God, our help in ages past, 

Our hope for years to come, 
Our shelter from the stormy blast, 
And our eternal home, — 

2 Before the hills in order stood, 

Or earth received her frame, 
From everlasting thou art God, — 
To endless years the same. 

8 A thousand ages, in thy sight, 
Are like an evening gone ; 
Short as the watch that ends the night, 
Before the rising sun. 

4 Time, like an ever-rolling stream, 
Bears all its sons away : 
They fly, forgotten, as a dream 
Dies at the opening day. 

6 Like flowery fields the nations stand, 
Pleased with the morning light : 
The flowers beneath the mower's hand 
Lie withering ere 'tis night. 



lOO. Eternal Dominion of God. WATTS. 

1 Great God, how infinite art thou ! 

How frail and weak are we ! 
Let the whole race of creatures bow, 
And pay their praise to thee. 

2 Thy throne eternal ages stood, 

Ere seas or stars were made : 
Thou art the ever-living God, 
Were all the nations dead. 

3 Eternity, with all its years, 

Stands present in thy view : 
To thee there's nothing old appears , 
Great God, there's nothing new. 

4 Our lives thro' varying scenes are drawn, 

And vexed with trifling cares, 
While thine eternal thought moves on 
Thine undisturbed affairs. 

5 Great God, how infinite art thou ! 

How frail and weak are we ! 
Let the whole race of creatures bow, 
And pay their praise to thee.

-L O I • Divine Goodness in Affliction. Doddridge. 

1 Great Ruler of all nature's frame, 

We own thy power divine ; 
We hear thy breath in every storm, 
For all the winds are thine. 

2 Wide as they sweep their sounding way, 

They work thy sovereign will ; 
And, awed by thy majestic voice, 
Confusion shall be still. 

3 Thy mercy tempers every blast 

To those who seek thy face ; 
And mingles, with the tempest's roar, 
The whispers of thy grace. 

4- Those gentle whispers let me hear, 
Till all the tumult cease, 
And gales of Paradise shall lull 
My weary soul to peace. 

1 QQ Pious Education of Children. Pa. 78. 

"O. WAXTS . 

1 Let children hear the mighty deeds 
Which God performed of old ; 
Which, in our younger years, we saw, 
And which our fathers told. 



2 He bids us make his glories known, — 

His works of power and grace ; 
And we'll convey his wonders down 
Through every rising race. 

3 Our lips shall tell them to our sons, 

And they again to theirs ; 
That generations yet unborn 
May teach them to their heirs. 

4 Thus shall they learn in God alone 

Their hope securely stands, 
That they may ne'er forget his works, 
But practise his commands. 



" His Greatness is Unsearchable." 

HYliXS OF THE SPIBI* 



139. 

1 Great God, on whose sustaining power 

Unnumbered worlds depend ; 
Great Spirit, comprehending all, 
Whom none can comprehend, — 

2 With wondering reverence we adore, 

With awe before thee bend, 
Whom none, but by thine inward light 
And spirit, apprehend.

All Tilings Present to God. GASKELL. 



1 Mighty God, the first, the last, 
What are ages in thy sight 
But as yesterday when past, 

Or a watch within the night ? 

2 All that being ever knew, 

Down, far down, ere time had birth, 
Stands as clear within thy view 
As the present things of earth. 

3 All that being e'er shall know, 
On, still on, through farthest years, 
All eternity can show, 

Bright before thee now appears. 

4 In thine all-embracing sight, 
Every change its purpose meets, 
Every cloud floats into light, 
Every woe its glory greets. 

5 Whatsoe'er our lot may be, 
Calmly in this thought we'll rest, — 
Could we see as thou dost see, 
We should choose it as the best. 



141. Nature's Praise. Cox. 

1 Heaven and earth and sea and air, 
God's eternal praise declare : 

Up, my soul ; awake and raise 
Grateful hymns and songs of praise. 

2 See the sun, with glorious ray, 
Pierce the clouds at opening day ; 
Moon and stars, in splendor bright, 
Praise their God through silent night. 

3 See how earth, with beauty decked, 
Tells a heavenly Architect ; 
Woods and fields, with lowing kine, 
Show their Maker all divine. 

4 See the birds, how, pair by pair, 
Swift they eleave the yielding air ; 
Thunder, lightning, storm, and wind, 
God doth at his will unbind. 

5 Through the world, great God, I trace 
Wonders of thy power and grace : 
Write more deeply on my heart 
What I am, and what thou art.

Heaven with hallelujahs rang,

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn 
When the Prince of Peace was born ; 
Songs of praise arose when he 
Captive led captivity. 

3 Heaven and earth must pass away ; 
Songs of praise shall crown that day : 
God will make new heavens and earth ; 
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

Still in songs of praise rejoice ; 
Learning here, by faith and love, 
Songs of praise to sing above.

Songs of praise shall conquer death ; 
Then, amidst eternal joy, 

Songs of praise our powers employ.

1 Begin, my soul, the exalted lay ; 
Let each enraptured thought obey, 

And praise the Almighty's name : 
Lo ! heaven and earth, and seas and skies, 
In one melodious concert rise, 

To swell the inspiring theme. 

2 Ye deeps, with roaring billows rise, 
To join the thunders of the skies, — 

Praise Him who bids you roll : 
His praise in softer notes declare, 
Each whispering breeze of yielding air, 

And breathe it to the soul. 

3 Wake, all ye soaring throng, and sing; 
Ye feathered warblers of the spring, 

Harmonious anthems raise 
To Him who shaped your finer mould, 
Who tipped your glittering wings with 
gold, 

And tuned your voice to praise. 

4 Let man, by nobler passions swayed, — 
Let man, in God's own image made, 

His breath in praise employ ; 



Spread wide his Maker's name around, 
Till heaven shall echo back the sound, 
In songs of holy joy.

I trace with wonder and delight : 

Thy name is all divine. 
There's nought in earth or sea or air, 
Or heaven itself, that's good or fair, 

But is entirely thine. 

2 To thee my warm affections move 
In sweet astonishment and love. 

While at thy feet I fall. 
I pant for nought beneath the skies : 
To thee my ardent wishes rise, 

O my eternal All ! 

3 What shall I do to spread thy praise, 
My God, through my remaining days P 

Or how thy name adore ? 
To thee I consecrate my breath : 
Let me be thine in life and death, 

And thine for evermore.

It ( • Praise for God's Love. EL Moore. 

1 My God. thy boundless love I praise : 
How bright on high its glories blaze ! 

How sweetly bloom below ! 
It streams from thine eternal throne ; 
Through heaven its joys for ever run, 

And o'er the earth they flow. 

2 'Tis love that paints the purple morn, 
And bids the clouds, in air upborne, 

Their genial drops distil : 
In every vernal beam it glows, 
And breathes in every gale that blows, 

And glides in every rill. 

3 But in thy word I see it shine 
With grace and glories more divine, 

Proclaiming sins forgiven ; 
There Faith, bright cherub, points the 

way 
To realms of everlasting day, 

And opens all her heaven. 

4 Then let the love that makes me blessed 
With cheerful praise inspire my breast, 

And ardent gratitude ; 



And all my thoughts and passions tend 
To thee, my Father and my Friend, 
My souPs eternal good.

Providential Goodness of God. Exeter Col. 



1 Great Source of unexhausted good, 
Who giv'st us health and friends and food 

And peace and calm content, 
Like fragrant incense, to the skies, 
Let songs of grateful praises rise 

For all thy blessings lent. 

2 Through all the dangers of the day, 
Thy providence attends our way, 

To guard us and to guide ; 
Thy grace directs our wandering will, 
And warns us, lest seducing ill 

Allure our souls aside. 

3 To thee our lives, our all, we owe, 
Our peace and sweetest, joys below, 

And brightest hopes above ; 
Then let our lives, and all that's ours, 
Our souls, and all our active powers 

Be sacred to thy love.

Attempts to look thy nature through : 
Our laboring powers with reverence own 
Thy glories never can be known. 

2 Not the high seraph's mighty thought, 
Who countless years his God has sought, 
Such wondrous height or depth can find, 
Or fully trace thy boundless mind. 

3 And yet thy kindness deigns to show 
Enough for mortal minds to know ; 
While wisdom, goodness, power divine, 
Through all thy works and conduct shine.

Thy works of nature and of grace, 
Explore thy sacred truth, and still 
Press on to know and do thy will !

Who dwells enthroned above the skies, 
And life and breath on all bestows.

2 Let all of good this bosom fires, 

To him, sole good, give praises due; 
Let all the truth himself inspires

3 In ardent adoration joined, 
Obedient to thy holy will, 

Let all our faculties, combined, 
Thy just commands, O God ! fulfil. 

4 Oh may the solemn-breathing sound

Where thou, whose glory knows no bound, 
Great Cause of all things, dwell'st alone.

Are to my God distinctly known ; 

He knows the words I mean to speak, 
Ere from my opening lips they break.

3 Within thy circling power I stand ; 
On every side I find thy hand : 
Awake, asleep, at home, abroad, 

I am surrounded still with God. 

4 Oh may these thoughts possess my breast, 
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest; 

Nor let my weaker passions dare 
Consent to sin, for God is there !

Providence. 



Watts. 



1 High in the heavens, eternal God, 
Thy goodness in full glory shines ; 

Thy truth shall break through every cloud 
That veils and darkens thy designs. 

2 For ever firm thy justice stands, 

As mountains their foundations keep : 
Wise are the wonders of thy hands ; 
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 

3 Life, like a fountain, rich and free, 
Springs from the presence of my Lord ; 
And in thy light our souls shall see 
The glories promised in thy word. 



JLOo. The Just God. Hyiiks of the Spmrt 

1 The Lord is just ; this is his throne : 
The world his righteousness shall own ; 
Yea, all the world with awe shall see 
He reigns and rules in equity. 

2 His perfect law the world surrounds, 
And sets to every wrong its bounds ; 
Through ways oft hid from human sight, 
Makes sure the triumph of the right. 

3 Ye troubled spirits, seek his face, 
And rest upon his righteousness ; 
Let sacred courage fill your hearts, 
The strength the righteous God imparts 

4 Let none who suffer wrong despair ; 
The God of justice hears their prayer : 
Let none dare break his statutes pure ; 
God's justice, though it wait, is sure. 

5 Just is our God, for ever just ; 
Upon this rock I fix my trust : 
This faith shall every fear remove ; 
His justice is his perfect love.

"I £T A " 1 will that men pray everyivhere." 
J-*-''** Methodist Col. 

1 They who seek the throne of grace, 
Find that throne in every place : 

If we live a life of prayer, 
God is present everywhere. 

2 In our sickness, in our health ; 
In our want, or in our wealth, — 
If we look to God in prayer, 
God is present everywhere. 

3 When our earthly comforts fail, 
When the woes of life prevail, 
'Tis the time for earnest prayer : 
God is present everywhere. 

4 Then, my soul, in every strait, 
To thy Father, come and wait ; 
He will answer every prayer : 
God is present everywhere.

Times of trial and of grief; 
Times of triumph and relief;

Times to taste a Saviour's love : 
All is fixed, the means and end, 

As shall please my heavenly Friend.

Not to man, but God, submit, 
Lay my reasonings at thy feet ;

Want shall never more be mine :

He shall lead my weary feet 

To the streams that, still and slow,

And, his mercy to proclaim, 

When through devious paths I stray, 
Teach my steps the better way.

Yield me an eternal home.

Every hope thy offspring is, 
Beaming from futurity.

Every moon that shines serene ; 
Every morn that welcomes day ; 
Every evening's twilight scene ; 
Every hour which wisdom brings ; 
Every incense at thy shrine, — 
These, and all life's holiest things, 
And its fairest, — all are thine. 

3 And, for all, my hymns shall rise 
Daily to thy gracious throne : 
Thither let my asking eyes 
Turn, unwearied, righteous One. 
Through life's strange vicissitude, 
There reposing all my care ; 
Trusting still, through ill and good, 
Fixed and cheered and counselled there.

1 The Lord our God is full of might, 

The winds obey his will ; 
He speaks, and in his heavenly height 
Ihe rolling sun stands still. 

2 Rebel, ye waves, and o'er the land, 

With threatening aspect, roar : 
The Lord uplifts his awful hand, 
And chains you to the shore. 

3 Howl, winds of night, your force combine 

Without his high behest, 
Ye shall not in the mountain pine 
Disturb the sparrow's nest. 

i Ye nations, bend, in reverence bend ; 
Ye monarchs, wait his nod ; 
And bid the choral song ascend, 
To celebrate our God. 

JLOU. Universal Goodness of God. Browne. 

I Lord, thou art good ; all nature shows 
Its mighty Author kind : 
Thy bounty through creation flows, 
Full, free, and unconfined. 



2 The whole in every part proclaims 

Thy infinite good-will : 
It shines in stars, and flows in streams, 
And bursts from every hill. 

3 We view it o'er the spreading main, 

And heavens which spread more wide : 
It drops in gentle showers of rain, 
And rolls in every tide. 

4 Long hath it been diffused abroad, 

Through ages past and gone ; 
Nor ever can exhausted be, 
But still keeps flowing on. 

5 Through the whole earth it pours supplies, 

Spreads joy through every part : 
Oh may such love attract my eyes, 
And captivate my heart ; 

6 My highest admiration raise, 

My best affections move ; 
Employ my tongue in songs of praise, 
And fill my heart with love !

God'5 Care. 



Addison. 



1 When all thy mercies, O my God ! 

My rising soul surveys, 
Transported with the view, I'm lost 
In wonder, love, and praise. 

2 Unnumbered comforts on my soul 

Thy tender care bestowed, 
Before my infant heart conceived 
From whom those comforts flowed. 

3 When worn with sickness, oft hast thou 

With health renewed my face ; 
And, when in sin and sorrow sunk, 
Revived my soul with grace. 

4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 

My daily thanks employ ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart, 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

5 Through every period of my life, 

Thy goodness I'll pursue ; 
And after death, in distant worlds, 
The glorious theme renew.

That thou the only Lord

To thee the powers on high, 
Both cherubim and seraphim, 
Continually do cry, — 

3 O holy, holy, holy Lord, 

Whom heavenly hosts obey ! 
The world is with the glory filled 
Of thy majestic sway. 

4 The apostles' glorious company, 

And prophets crowned with light. 
With all the martyrs' noble host, 
Thy constant praise recite. 

5 The holy church throughout the world, 

O Lord ! confesses thee, — 
That thou eternal Father art, 
Of boundless majesty.

God is Love 



1 God is love : his mercy brightens 

All the path in which we rove ; 
Bliss he wakes, and woe he lightens : 
God is wisdom, God is love. 

2 Chance and change are busy ever ; 

Man decays, and ages move ; 
But his mercy waneth never : 
God is wisdom, God is love. 

3 E'en the hour that darkest seemeth 

Will his changeless goodness prove ; 
From the gloom his brightness streameth 
God is wisdom, God is love. 

4 He with earthly cares entwineth 

Hope and comfort from above ; 
Everywhere his glory shineth : 
God is wisdom, God is love.

He careth for us. 



BONAR. 



1 Yes, for me, for me He careth 
With a father's tender care ; 
Yes, with me, with me he shareth 
Every burden, every fear. 



2 Yes, o'er me, o'er me he watcheth, 

Ceaseless watcheth, night and day ; 
Yes, even me, even me he snatcheth 
From the perils of the way. 

3 Yes, in me abroad he sheddeth 

Joys unearthly, love and light ; 
And to cover mo he spreadeth 
His paternal wing of might. 

4 Yes, in me, in me he dwelleth ; 

I in him, and he in me : 
And my empty soul he filleth, 
Here and through eternity. 

1 OO. Redeeming Love. ROBIWSOW 

1 Father, source of every blessing, 

Tune my heart to grateful lays : 
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, 
Call for ceaseless songs of praise. 

2 Teach me some melodious measure, 

Sung by raptured saints above ; 
Fill my soul with sacred pleasure, 
While I sing redeeming love.

Of the mountain, rock, and river, 
Blessed be thy name for ever. 

3 God of evening's peaceful ray>

Rising from the distant sea, 
Breathing of eternity !

Glory to thy name for ever.

1 GO. Goodness of God. Gibbons. 

1 Thy goodness, Lord, our souls confess ; 

Thy goodness we adore, — 
A spring whose blessings never fail, 
A sea without a shore. 

2 Sun, moon, and stars thy love declare 

In every golden ray : 
Love draws the curtains of the night, 
And love brings back the day. 

3 Thy bounty every season crowns, 

With all the bliss it yields ; 
With joyful clusters loads the vines, 
With strengthening grain the fields. 

£ But chiefly thy compassion, Lord, 
Is in the gospel seen : 
There, like a sun, thy mercy shines, 
Without a cloud between.

I God, in the high and holy place, 
Looks down upon the spheres ; 
Yet, in his providence and grace, 
To every eye appears. 



2 He bows the heavens; the mountains 

stand, 
A highway for our God : 
He walks amidst the desert-land ; 
'Tis Eden where he trod. 

3 The forests in his strength rejoice : 

Hark ! on the evening breeze, 
As once of old, Jehovah's voice 
Is heard among the trees. 

4 In every stream his bounty flows, 

Diffusing joy and wealth ; 
In every breeze his spirit blows, — 
The breath of life and health. 

5 His blessings fall in plenteous showers 

Upon the lap of earth, 
That teems with foliage, fruits, and flowers, 
And rings with infant mirth. 

6 If God hath made this world so fair. 

Where sin and death abound, 
How beautiful,. beyond compare, 
Will paradise be found !

±7U. " Mighty in Power." WATTS. 

1 I sing the mighty power of God, 

That made the mountains rise ; 
That spread the flowing seas abroad, 

And built the lofty skies. 
I sing the wisdom that ordained 

The sun to rule the day : 
The moon shines full at his command, 

And all the stars obey. 

2 I sing the goodness of the Lord, 

That filled the earth with food : 
lie formed the creatures with his word, 

And then pronounced them good. 
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed, 

Where'er I turn my eye ; 
If I survey the ground I tread, 

Or gaze upon the sky ! 

8 There's not a plant or flower below, 

But makes thy glories known ; 
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, 

By order from thy throne. 
Creatures that borrow life from thee 

Are subject to thy care : 
There's not a place where we can flee, 

But God is present there 



J- i -I • Nature's Hymn. BowRruo. 

1 The heavenly spheres to thee, O God ! 

Attune their evening hymn : 
All wise, all holy, thou art praised 

In song of seraphim. 
Unnumbered systems, suns, and worlds 

Unite to worship thee, 
While thy majestic greatness fills 

Space, time, eternity. 

2 Nature, — a temple worthy thee, - - 

That beams with light and love ; 
Whose flowers so sweetly bloom below, 

Whose stars rejoice above ; 
Whose altars are the mountain cliffs 

That rise along the shore ; 
Whose anthems, the sublime accord 

Of storm and ocean roar. 

3 Her song of gratitude is sung 

By spring's awakening hours ; 
Her summer offers at thy shrine 

Its earliest, loveliest flowers ; 
Her autumn brings its ripened fruits, 

In glorious luxury given ; 
While winter's silver heights reflect 

Thy brightness back to heaven.

Goodness of God to Soul and Body. 



Ps. 103. 

Watts. 



172 

1 Bless, O my soul ! the living God ; 
Call home thy thoughts that rove abroad : 
Let all the powers within me join 

In work and worship so divine. 

2 Bless, O my soul ! the God of grace ; 
His favors claim thy highest praise : 
Why should the wonders he hath wrought 
Be lost in silence, and forgot ? 

8 Our youth decayed, his power repairs ; 
His mercy crowns our growing years ; 
He satisfies our mouth with good, 
And fills our hopes with heavenly food. 

4 He sees the oppressor and the oppressed, 
And often gives the sufferers rest ; 
But will his justice more display 
In the last great rewarding day. 



Loving-kindness of God. Skwall's Col. 



173. 

1 Father, to thy kind love we owe 
All that is fair and good below : 
Bestower of the health that lies 
On tearless cheeks and cheerful eyes ; 



2 Giver of sunshine and of rain ; 
Ripener of fruits on hill and plain ; 
Fountain of light, that, rayed afar, 
Fills the vast urns of sun and star •, 

3 In woe's dark hour, our kindest stay $ 
Sole trust when life shall pass away ; 
Teacher of hopes that light the gloom 
Of death, and consecrate the tomb ; 

4 Patient, with headstrong guilt to bear. 
Slow to avenge, and kind to spare ; 
Listening to prayer, and reconciled 
Full quickly to thy erring child.

JLOO. The Heavens declare the Glory of God. Addison 

1 The spacious firmament on high, 
With all the blue ethereal sky, 

And spangled heavens, a shining frame, 

Their great Original proclaim. 

The unwearied sun, from day to day, 

Does his Creator's power display, 

And publishes to every land 

The work of an almighty hand. 

2 Soon as the evening shades prevail, 
The moon takes up the wondrous tale, 
And nightly to the listening earth 
Repeats the story of her birth ; 

While all the stars that round her burn, 
And all the planets, in their turn, 
Confirm the tidings, as they roll, 
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 

3 What though in solemn silence all 
Move round this dark terrestrial ball ! 



What though no real voice nor sound 
Amid their radiant orbs be found ! — 
In reason's ear they all rejoice, 
And utter forth a glorious voice ; 
For ever singing, as they shine, 
"The hand that made us is divine." 

1 0'±. God in Creation, w. B. O. PEABOirr 

1 God of the rolling orbs above, 
Thy name is written clearly bright 
In the warm day's unvarying blaze, 
Or evening's golden shower of light . 
For every fire that fronts the sun, 
And every spark that walks alone 
Around the utmost verge of heaven, 
Were kindled at thy burning throne. 

2 God of the world, the hour must come, 
And nature's self to dust return ; 

Her crumbling altars must decay ; 
Her incense-fires shall cease to burn *

Gel the Light and Life of the World. T. MOOEE. 



1 THOU art, O God ! the life and light 
Of all this wondrous world we see : 
Its glow by day, its smile by night, 
Are but reflections caught from thee. 
"Where'er we turn, thy glories shine, 
And all things fair and bright are thine. 

2 When day, with farewell beam, delays 
Among the opening clouds of even, 
And we can almost think we gaze 
Through golden vistas into heaven, - - 



Those hues, that make the sun's decline 
So soft, so radiant, Lord, are thine. 

3 "When night, with wings of starry gloom 
O'ershadows all the earth and skies, — 
Like some dark, beauteous bird, whose 

plume 
Is sparkling with unnumbered eyes, — 
That sacred gloom, those fires divine, 
So grand, so countless. Lord, are thine. 

■4 When youthful spring around us breathes, 
Thy spirit warms her fragrant sigh ; 
And every flower the summer wreathes 
Is born beneath thy kindling eye : 
Where'er we turn, thy glories shine, 
And all things fair and bright are thine

The God that built the skies, 
And earth and nature made : 

God is the tower to which I fly ; 

His grace is nigh in every hour 

I No burning heats by day, 
Nor blasts of evening air, 
Shall take my health away, 
If God be with me there. 
Thou art my sun, and thou my shade, 
To guard my head by night or noon. 

5 Hast thou not given thy word, 
To save my soul from death ? 
And I can trust my Lord 
To keep my mortal breath. 
I'll go and come, nor fear to die, 
Till from on hi^h thou call me home.

His throne is built on high ; 
The garments he assumes 
Are light and majesty : 

His glories shine with beams so bright, 
No mortal eye can bear the sight. 

2 And can this mighty King 
Of glory condescend ? 
And will he write his name 
My Father and my Friend ? 

I love his name, I love his word: 

Join, all my powers, and praise the Lord.

The universal Lord, 

The sovereign King of kings ; 

And be his grace adored. 
His power and grace are still the same ; 
And let his name have endless praise. 

2 How mighty is his hand ! 
What wonders hath he done ! 
He formed the earth and seas, 
And spread the heavens alone. 

Thy mercy, Lord, shall still endure ; 
And ever sure abides thy word. 

3 He sent his only Son 

To save us from our woe, — 
From darkness, sin, and death, 
And every hurtful foe. 

His power and grace are still the same ; 

And let his name have endless praise. 

4 Give thanks aloud to God, — 
To God the heavenly King ; 
And let the spacious earth 
His works and glories sing. 



Thy mercy, Lord, shall still endure ; 
And ever sure abides thy word.

1 Angels, assist to sing 
The honors of your God ; 
Touch every tuneful string, 
And sound his name abroad ; 

Come, pour the trembling notes along, 
And swell the grand, immortal song. 

2 And ye of meaner birth, 
Your joyful voices raise ; 
All ye who dwell on earth, 
Your great Creator praise : 

Let loud hosannas joyful rise, 

Roll round the earth, and pierce the skies 

3 Let day and dusky night, 
In solemn order, join 
His praises to recite, 

And speak his power divine : 
Let every hill, and every vale- 
Re-echo with the sacred tale.

He spreads the evening veil, and keeps 
The silent hours while Israel sleeps.

God our Shepherd. 

Tiie Lord my pasture shall prepare, 
And feed me with a shepherd^ care ; 
His presence shall my wants supply, 
And guard me with a watchful eye ; 
My noonday walks he shall attend, 
And all my midnight hours defend. 



2 When in the sultry glebe I faint, 
Or on the thirsty mountain pant, 
"To fertile vales and dewy meads 
My weary, wandering steps he leads, 
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow, 
Amid the verdant landscape flow. 

3 Though in the paths of death I tread, 
With gloomy horrors overspread, 
My steadfast heart shall fear no ill, 
For thou, O Lord ! art with me still : 



Thy friendly crook shall give me aid, 
And guide me thro 1 the dreadful shade.

1 On let my trembling soul be still, 
While darkness veils this mortal eye, 
And wait thy wise, thy holy will, 
Wrapt yet in fears and mystery ! 

I cannot, Lord, thy purpose see ; 
Yet all is well, since ruled by thee. 

2 When, mounted on thy clouded car, 
Thou send'st thy darker spirits down, 
I can discern thy light afar, — 

Thy light, sweet beaming thro' thy frown , 
And, should I faint a moment, then 
I think of thee, and smile ajrain.

JLtjO. Nature's Worship. J. G. Whittier. 

1 The harp at Nature's advent strung 

Has never ceased to play ; 
The song the stars of morning sung 
Has never died away. 

2 And prayer is made, and praise is given 

By all things near and far : 
The ocean looketh up to heaven 
And mirrors every star ; 

3 The green earth sends her incense up 

From many a mountain shrine : 
From folded leaf and dewy cup 
She pours her sacred wine. 

4 The blue sky is the temple's arch ; 

Its transept, earth and air ; 
The music of its starry march 
The chorus of a prayer. 

5 So nature keeps the reverent frame 

With which her years began ; 

And all her signs and voices shame 

The prayerless heart of man. 



Ub. Trie Book of Nature. Keble 

1 There is a book, who runs may read. 

Which heavenly truth imparts, 
And all the lore its scholars need 
Pure eyes and Christian hearts. 

2 The works of God, above, below. 

Within us and around, 
Are pages in that book, to show 
How God himself is found. 

3 The glorious sky, embracing all, 

Is like the Maker's love, 
Wherewith encompassed, great and small 
In peace and order move. 

4 Two worlds are ours : 'tis only sin 

Forbids us to descry 
The mystic heaven and earth within. 
Plain as the sea and sky. 

5 Thou who hast given us eyes to see 

And love this sight so Ciir, 

Give us a heart to find out thee, 

And read thee everywhere.

All worlds, all creatures, lie : 
No distance can elude thy search, 
No action 'scape thine eye. 

2 From thee our vital breath we drew, 

Our childhood was thy care, 
And vigorous youth and feeble age 
Thy kind protection share. 

3 Whate'er we do, where'er we turn, 

Thy ceaseless bounty flows ; 
Oppressed with woe, when nature faints, 
Thine arm is our repose.

Oh still our wants supply ! 
Safe in thy presence may we live, 
And in thy favor die.

Thy hand will there our footsteps lead, 
Thy love our path surround.

And all the blessings we receive, 
Ceaseless proceed from thee.

On thee our hopes depend ; 
Through every age, in every clime,

Through varied deaths my soul hath led, 
Or turned aside the fatal hour, 

Or lifted up my sinking head, — 

2 In all my ways thy hand I own, 
Thy ruling providence I see : 
Assist me still my course to run, 
And still direct my paths to thee. 

'6 Whither, oh whither should I fly, 
But to my loving Father's breast, 
Secure within thine arms to lie, 
And safe beneath thy wings to rest ? 

4 I have no skill the snare to shun ; 
But thou, O God ! my wisdom art : 
I ever into ruin run ; 

But thou art greater than my heart. 

5 Foolish and impotent and blind, 
Lead me a way I have not known ; 
Bring me where I my heaven may find, — 
The heaven of loving thee alone.

Ilowe'er unjustly we complain, 
To all their necessary share 

Of joy and sorrow, health and pain. 

3 All things on earth, and all in heaven, 
On thine eternal will depend ; 

And all for greater good were given, 
Would man pursue the appointed end.

Indifferent let my wishes De ; 
Passion be calm, and dumb be pride, 
And fixed my soul, great God, on thee.

2 In thee our fathers sought their rest, 
In thee our fathers still are blest ; 
And, while the tomb confines their dust, 
In thee their souls abide and trust. 

3 Through all the thorny paths we trace 
In this uncertain wilderness, 

When friends desert, and foes invade, 
Revive our heart, and guard our head. 

4 So when this pilgrimage is o'er, 
And we must dwell in flesh no more, 
To thee our separate souls shall come, 
And find in thee a surer home. 

^UO. God our Father. Mrs. Gilman. 

1 Is there a lone and dreary hour, 
When worldly pleasures lose their power ? 
My Father, let me turn to thee, 

And set each thought of darkness free. 

2 Is there a time of racking grief, 
Which scorns the prospect of relief? 
My Father, break the cheerless gloom, 
And bid my heart its calm resume. 



3 Is there an hour of peace and joy, 
When hope is all my soul's employ ? 
My Father, still my hopes will roam, 
Until they rest with thee, their home. 

4 The noontide blaze, the midnight scene, 
The dawn, or twilight's sweet serene, 
The glow of life, the dying hour, 

Shall own my Father's grace and power. 

^Ut, God the Guardian of Nations. ROSCOX. 

1 Great God, beneath whose piercing eye 
The world's extended kingdoms lie ; 
Whose favoring smile upholds them all, 
Whose anger smites them, and they fall, — 

2 We bow before thy heavenly throne ; 
Thy power we see, thy goodness own : 
But, cherished by thy milder voice, 
Our bosoms tremble and rejoice. 

3 Thy kindness to our fathers shown, 
Their children's children long shall own ; 
To thee, with grateful hearts, shall raise 
Their tribute of exulting praise.

Tlu Mysteries of Providence. Cowper. 



1 God moves in a mysterious way 

His wonders to perform : 
He plants his footsteps in the sea, 
And rides upon the storm. 

2 Deep in unfathomable mines 

Of never-failing skill, 
He treasures up his bright designs, 
And works his sovereign will. 

3 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, 

But trust him for his grace : 
Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face. 

4 His purposes will ripen fast, 

Unfolding every hour : 
The bud may have a bitter taste, 
But sweet will be the flower. 

5 Blind unbelief is sure to err, 

And scan his work in vain : 
God is his own interpreter, 
And he will make it plain.

How glorious to behold ! 
Tinged with a blue of heavenly dye, 
And decked with sparkling gold. 

3 Thy glories blaze all nature round, 

And strike the gazing sight, 
Through skies and seas and solid ground. 
With terror and delight. 

4 Almighty power and equal skill 

Shine through the worlds abroad. 
Our souls with vast amazement fill. 
And speak the builder God.

Our warmer passions move : 
Here we behold our Saviour's face, 
And here adore his love.

1 God of the earth, the sky, the sea ; 
Maker of all above, below, — 
Creation lives and moves in thee ; 
Thy present life through all doth flow. 

2 Thee in the lonely woods we meet, 
On the bare hills or cultured plains, 
In every flower beneath our feet, 
And even the still rock's mossy stains. 

3 Thy love is in the sunshine's glow, 
Thy life is in the quickening air : 
When lightnings flash and storm-winds 

blow, 
There is thy power ; thy law is there. 

4 We feel thy calm at evening's hour, 
Thy grandeur in the march of night ; 
And, when the morning breaks in power, 
We hear thy word, " Let there be light. 11 

6 % But higher far, and far more clear, 
Thee in man's spirit we behold ; 
Thine image and thyself are there, —

God is Good. 



Gurnet. 



1 Yes, God is good : in earth and sky, 
From ocean-depths and spreading wood, 
Ten thousand voices seem to cry, 

" God made us all, and God is good." 

2 The sun that keeps his trackless way, 
And downward pours his golden flood, 
Night's sparkling hosts, all seem to say, 
In accents clear, that God is good. 

3 I hear it in the rushing breeze : 
The hills that have for ages stood, 
The echoing sky and roaring seas, 
All swell the chorus, " God is good.' 1 

4 Yes, God is good, all nature says, 

By God's own hand with speech endued, 
And man, in louder notes of praise, 
Should sing for joy that God is good." 

5 For all thy gifts we bless thee, Lord ; 
But chiefly for our heavenly food, 

Thy pardoning grace, thy quickening 

word: 
These prompt our song, that God is good

Z 1 0. The Lord's Prayer. BIRMINGHAM Col. 

1 Father, adored in worlds above, 
Thy glorious name be hallowed still ; 
Thy kingdom come in truth and love ; 
And earth, like heaven, obey thy will. 

2 Lord, make our daily wants thy care ; 
Forgive the sins which we forsake : 
In thy compassion let us share, 

As fellow-men of ours partake. 

3 Evils beset us every hour ; 

Thy kind protection we implore : 
Thine is the kingdom, thine the power, 
The glory thine for evermore.

Following after God. Montgomery. 



1 O God ! thou art my God alone ; 
Early to thee my soul shall cry, 
A pilgrim in a land unknown, 
A thirsty land, whose springs are dry. 



2 Yet, through this rough and thorny 

maze, 
I follow hard on thee, my God : 
Thine hand unseen upholds my ways ; 
I lean upon thy staff and rod. 

3 Thee, in the watches of the night, 
When I remember, on my bed, 

Thy presence makes the darkness light ; 
Thy guardian wings are round my head. 

4 Better than life itself thy love, 
Dearer than all beside to me ; 
For whom have I in heaven above, 

Or what on earth, compared with thee ? 

5 Praise with my heart, my mind, my 

voice, 
For all thy mercy, I will give ; 
My soul shall still in God rejoice ; 
My tongue shall bless thee while I live.

From distrust and envy free, 
Pleased with all that pleases thee. 

2 What thou shalt to-day provide, 
Let me as a child receive ; 



What to-morrow may betide, 
Calmly to thy wisdom leave. 
'Tis enough that thou wilt care : 
Why should I the burden bear?

On a care beyond his own ; 
Knows he's neither strong nor wise, 
Fears to stir a step alone, — 
Let me thus with thee abide, 
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.

Pants the living God to see. 
When, oh ! when, with filial fear, 
Lord, shall I to thee draw near ? 

2 Why art thou cast down, my soul ? 
God, thy God, shall make thee whole , 
Why art thou disquieted ? 

God shall lift thy fallen head, 
And his countenance benign 
Be the saving health of thine.

1 Fatiiei?, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out to me : 
The changes that must surely come, 

I do not fear to see. 
I ask thee for the present mind, 

Intent on pleasing thee. 

2 I ask thee for a thoughtful love, 

Through constant watching wise, 
To meet the glad with joyful smile, 

And wipe the weeping eyes ; 
A heart at leisure from itself, 

To soothe and sympathize. 

3 I would not have the restless will, 

That hurries to and fro, 
Seeking for some great thing to do, 

Or secret thing to know : 
I would be treated as a child, 

And guided where to go. 

4 Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatsoe'er estate, 
I would have fellowship with hearts 
To keep and cultivate ; 



A work of holy love to do 
For Iliin on whom I wait.

To none that ask denied ; 

A mind to blend with outward life 
While keeping at thy side : 

Content to fill a little space, 
If thou be glorified. 

Briers beset my every path, 
Which call for patient care ; 

There is a cross in every lot, 
An earnest need for prayer : 

But lowly hearts that lean on thee 
Are happy anywhere. 

In service which thy will appoints. 

There are no bonds for me ; 
My inmost heart is taught the truth 

That makes thy children free : 
A life of self-renouncing love 

Is a life of liberty.

1 O shadow in a sultry land ! 

We gather to thy breast, 
Whose love, enfolding like the night, 

Brings quietude and rest ; 
Glimpse of the fairer life to be, 

In foretaste here possessed. 

2 From aimless wanderings we come, 

From drifting to and fro ; 
The wave of being mingles deep 

Amid its ebb and flow : 
The grander sweep of tides serene 

Our spirits yearn to know. 

3 That which the garish day had lost, 

The twilight vigil brings ; 
While softlier the vesper bell 

Its silver cadence rings, — 
The sense of an immortal trust, 

The brush of angel wings. 

i Drop down behind the solemn hills, 
O day with golden skies ! 
Serene, above its fading glow, 
Night, starry-crowned, arise. 



So beautiful may heaven be 
When life's last sunbeam dies !

Above that dome of sky, 
Farther than thought itself can flee, 

Thy dwelling is on high : 
Yet dear the awful thought to me, 

That thou, my God, art nigh. 

2 We hear thy voice when thunders roll 

Through the wide fields of air ; 
The waves obey thy dread control, 

Yet still thou art not there : 
Where shall I find him, my soul ! 

Who yet is everywhere ? 

3 Oh not in circling depth or height, 

But in the conscious breast ; 
Present to faith, though veiled from sight, 

There does his spirit rest ! 
Oh come, thou Presence Infinite 

And make thy creature blest !

LiLii . Prayer for Divine Help. Ch. Psalmist. 

1 Be with me, Lord, where'er I go ; 
Teach me what thou wouldst have me do ; 
Show me my weakness ; let me see 

I have my power, my all, from thee. 

2 Prevent me, lest I harbor pride, — 
Lest I in mine own strength confide ; 
Show me my weakness, let me see 

I have my power, my all from thee. 

3 Enrich me always with thy love ; 
My kind protection ever prove ; 
Thy signet put upon my breast, 
And let thy Spirit on me rest. 

4 Assist and teach me how to pray ; 
Incline my nature to obey ; 

What thou abhorr'st, that let me flee, 
And only love what pleases thee. 

5 Oh may I never do my will, 
But thine, and only thine, fulfil ! 
Let all my time, and all my ways, 
Be spent and ended to thy praise.

And loved thee with a perfect love ! 
Oh that my Lord would dwell in me,

Till thou dost in my heart appear : 
Arise, propitious Sun, and light 
An everlasting morning there. 

3 Oh let my prayer acceptance find, 
And bring the mighty blessing down ; 
Eye-sight impart, for I am blind, 
And seal me thine adopted son !

Choosing the Better Part. DODDRIDGE. 



1 Beset with snares on every hand, 
In life's uncertain path I stand : 
Father divine, diffuse thy light, 

To guide my doubtful footsteps right. 

2 Engage this roving, treacherous heart 
Wisely to choose the better part ; 

To scorn the trifles of a day, 
For joys that none can take away. 

3 Then let the wildest storms arise, 
Let tempests mingle earth and skies, 
No fatal shipwreck shall I fear, 

But all my treasures with me bear. 



4 If thou, my Father, still be nigh, 
Cheerful I live, and joyful die ; 
Secure, when mortal comforts flee, 
To find ten thousand worlds in thee.

Retirement and Meditation. 



Watts 



1 My God, permit me not to be 
A stranger to myself and thee : 
Amidst a thousand thoughts I rove, 
Forgetful of my highest love. 

2 Why should my passions mix with earth, 
And thus debase my heavenly birth ? 
Why should I cleave to things below, 
And let my God, my Saviour, go ? 

3 Call me away from flesh and sense, — 
One sovereign word can draw me thence : 
I would obey the voice divine, 

And all inferior joys resign. 

4 Be earth, with all her scenes, withdrawn ; 
Let noise and vanity be gone ; 

In secret silence of the mind, 

My heaven, and there my God, I find.

And make my heart sincere ;

But keep my conscience clear.

Nor all of death to die. 

3 Beyond this vale of tears, 
There is a life above, 

Unmeasured by the flight of years ; 
And all that life is love.

Alone are found in thee 

The life of perfect love, — the rest 
Of immortality.

Who his just laws obey. 

3 Give me the tender heart 
That mingles fear with love, 

And lead me through whatever path 
Thy wisdom shall approve.

From error, shame, and guilt ; 
Nor suffer the fair hope to fail, 
Which on thy truth is built.

1 Thou hidden love of God, whose height, 
Whose depth unfathomed no man knows, 
I see from far thy beauteous light, 

Inly I sigh for thy repose. 

My heart is pained ; nor can it be 

At rest, till it find rest in thee. 

2 Thy secret voice invites me still 
The sweetness of thy yoke to prove : 
And fain I would ; but though my will 
Seem fixed, yet wide my passions rove ; 
Yet hindrances strew all the way ; 

I aim at thee, yet from thee stray. 

3 'Tis mercy all, that thou hast brought 
My mind to seek her peace in thee : 
Yet, while I seek, but find thee not, 
No peace my wandering soul shall see. 
Oh when shall all my wanderings end, 
And all my steps to thee-ward tend ! 

4 Is there a thing beneath the sun, 

That strives with thee my heart to share ; 
Ah ! tear it thence, and reign alone, 
The Lord of every motion there. 



Then shall my heart from earth be free, 
When it hath found repose in thee.

2 Father, my all in all thou art, 
My rest in toil, my ease in pain ; 
The healing of my broken heart ; 

In strife, my peace ; in loss, my gain ; 
My smile beneath the cold world's frown ; 
In shame, my glory and my crown ; 

3 In want, my plentiful supply ; 

In weakness, my almighty power ; 
In bonds, my perfect liberty ; 
My light in evil's darkest hour ; 
In grief, my joy unspeakable ;

They cast dishonor on thy Lord, 
And contradict his gracious word.

Why wilt thou now give place to fear? 
How canst thou want if he provide, 
Or lose thy way with such a guide ? 

3 Did ever trouble yet befall, 
And he refuse to hear thy call ? 
And has he not his promise passed, 
That thou shalt overcome at last ?

Will help me all my journey through,

New trophies to his endless praise.

1 Father, beneath thy sheltering wing 
In sweet security we rest, 

And fear no evil earth can bring ; 
In life, in death, supremely blest. 

2 For life is good, whose tidal flow 
The motions of thy will obeys ; 

And death is good, that makes us know 
The life divine which all things sways.

3 And good it is to bear the cross, 
And so thy perfect peace to win ; 
And nought is ill, nor brings us loss, 
Nor works us harm, save only sin. 

4 Redeemed from that, we ask no more, 
But trust the love that saves, to guide : 
The grace that yields so rich a store 
Will grant us all we need beside.

1 O Lord ! thy heavenly grace impart, 
And fix my frail, inconstant heart : 
Henceforth my chief desire shall be 
To dedicate myself to thee. 

2 Whate'er pursuits my time employ, 
One thought shall fill my soul with joy 
That silent, secret thought shall be 
That all my hopes are fixed on thee. 

3 Thy glorious eye pervadeth space ; 
Thy presence, Lord, fills every place ; 
And, wheresoe'er my lot may be, 
Still shall my spirit cleave to thee. 



4 Renouncing every worldly thing, 
And safe beneath thy sheltering wing, 
My sweetest thought henceforth shall be, 
That all I want I find in thee.

2 Alas our wrath ! alas our pride ! 
Yet shall they not at last be gone ? 
Oh may we not each day abide 
Still nearer the all-loving One ? 

3 Father of lights, our darkness dares 
Hope into something bright to rise ; 
Each well-won truth our souls declares 
Of closer kin to thee, all-wise. 

4 Would we not grow divinely bright, 
Take sweetness in, put glory on, - 
Yes, wax more worthy to delight 
In thee, first fair, all-glorious One ?

Cowpek. 

1 O Lord ! my best desires fulfil ; 

And help me to resign 
Life, health, and comfort to thy will, 
And make thy pleasure mine. 

2 Why should I shrink at thy command, 

Whose love forbids my fears ; 
Or tremble at thy gracious hand, 
That wipes away my tears ? 

3 No : let me rather freely yield 

What most I prize, to thee, 

Who never hast a good withheld, 

Nor wilt withhold, from me. 

4 Wisdom and mercy guide my way : 

Shall I resist them both, — 
Short-sighted creature of a day, 
And crushed before the moth ? 

5 But, all ! my inward spirit cries, 

Still bind me to thy sway ; 
Else the next cloud that veils my skies 
Drives all these thoughts away.

From every murmur free ; 
The blessings of thy grace impart, 
And make me live to thee ;

Thy presence through my journey shine, 
And crown my journey's end."

Proclaims himself my friend.

Be this my sweet employ :

Invades my throbbing breast, 
My tongue shall learn to speak thy praise, 
And soothe my pains to rest.

Shall spread thy praise abroad.

Thy mercy shall approve ; 
And every pang of sympathy, 
And ever}' care of love. 

3 Each golden hour of beaming light 

Is gilded by thy rays ; 
And dark affliction's midnight gloom 
A present God surveys. 

4 Full in thy view through life I pass, 

And in thy view I die ; 
And, when each mortal bond is broke, 
Shall find my God is nigh.

Spiritual Declension. 



T. H. Gill. 



1 Oh wherefore hath my spirit leave 

To come so near my God, 
And yet so soon must gaze and grieve 
O'er the abandoned road ? 

2 I feel my God almost possessed, 

The heavenly land half won ; 
The blissful greeting of the blest, 
The eternal song, begun : 

3 O wings that drop ! O strains that die ! 

O light that fades away ! 
O fleeting people of the sky ! 
O heaven, that will not stay ! 

4 What sweetness in thy presence, Lord ! 

What glory in thy smile ! 
Thine awful voice, how quickly heard ! 
Ah ! wherefore but a while ? 

5 How faintly sounds each sweet command ! 

Thy Son's dear face, how dim ! 
Yet would I smile at thy right hand, 
Yet would I reign with him. 



6 Lord, help this earnest, helpless will ; 
Lord, lay thy hand on me : 
Shall I not climb thy holy hill? 
Shall I not dwell with thee ?

The Light from Within. 



J Vexv. 



1 I saw on earth another light 

Than that which lit my eye 
Come forth, as from the soul within, 
And from a higher sky. 

2 Its beams still shone unclouded on, 

When, in the distant west, 
The sun I once had known had sunk 
For ever to his rest. 

3 And on I walked, though dark the night, 

Nor rose his orb by day ; 

As one to whom a surer guide 

Was pointing out the way. 

4 'Twas brighter far than noonday's beam 

It shone from God within ; 
And lit, as by a lamp from heaven, 
The world's dark track of sin.

1 Lord ! how happy should I be 
If I could leave my cares to thee. 

If I from self could rest ; 
And feel at heart that One above, 
In perfect wisdom, perfect love, 

Is working for the best ! 

2 For when I kneel, and cast my care 
Upon my God in humble prayer, 

With strengthened soul I rise ; 
Sure that our Father, who is nigh 
To hear the ravens when they cry, 

"Will hear his children's cries. 

3 Oh may these trustless hearts of ours 
The lesson learn from birds and flowers, 

And learn from self to cease ; 
Leave all things to our Father's will ; 
And, on his mercy leaning still, 

Find in each trial, peace ! 

UdiJKJ* The Fulness of God' a Love. C Weslet. 

1 O love divine, how sweet thou art ! 
When shall I find my willing heart 



All taken up by thee ? 
I thirst, I faint, I die to prove 
The greatness of redeeming love, — 

The love of God to me. 

2 Stronger his love than death or hell ; 
No mortal can its riches tell, 

Nor first-born sons of light : 
In vain they long its depths to see , 
They cannot reach the mystery, — 

The length, the breadth, the height 

3 God only knows the love of God : 
Oh that it now were shed abroad 

In this poor, stony heart ! 
For love I sigh, for love I pine : 
This only portion, Lord, be mine, - 

Be mine this better part. 

4 Oh that I could for ever sit 

In transport at my Father's feet ! 

Be this my happy choice : 
My only care, delight, and bliss, 
My joy, my heaven on earth, be this. 

To hear my Father's voice.

2%e Saint's Rest. Wesley's Col. 



1 Lord, I believe a rest remains, 

To all thy people known ; 
A rest where pure enjoyment reigns, 
And thou art loved alone ; 

2 A rest, where all our soul's desire 

Is fixed on things above, — 
Where fear and sin and grief expire, 
Cast out by perfect love. 

3 Oh that I now the rest might know, 

Believe, and enter in ! 
Now, Father, now the power bestow, 
And let me cease from sin. 

4 Remove all hardness from my heart, 

All unbelief remove ; 
To me the rest of faith impart, 
The sabbath of thy love.

1 Author of good, we rest on thee : 
Thine ever-watchful eye 
Alone our real wants can see ; 
Thy hand alone supply. 



2 In thine all-gracious providence 

Our cheerful hopes confide : 
Oh let thy power be our defence, 
Thy love our footsteps guide ! 

3 And since, by passion's force subdued, 

Too oft, with stubborn will, 
"We blindly shun the latent good, 
And grasp the specious ill, — 

4 Not what we wish, but what we want, 

Let mercy still supply : 
The good unasked, O Father ! grant ; 
The ill, though asked, deny.

In thee I firmly trust ; 
Thy ways, unknown or understood, 
Are merciful and just. 

3 Thy gifts are only then enjoyed, 

When used as talents lent ; 
Those talents only well employed 
When in thy service spent. 

4 And, though thy wisdom takes away, 

Shall I arraign thy will ? 
No : let me bless thy name, and say,

1 Father, there is no change to live with thee, 
Save that in thee I grow from day to day ; 

In each new word I hear, each thing I see, 
I but rejoicing hasten on my way. 

2 The morning comes, with blushes overspread, 
And I, new-wakened, find a morn within ; 
And in its modest dawn around me shed, 

Thou hear'st the prayer and the ascending hymn. 

3 Hour follows hour, the lengthening shades descend ; 
Yet they could never reach as far as me, 

Did not thy love its kind protection lend, 

That I, thy child, might sleep in peace with thee.

Nor far removed where feet have seldom strayed : 
Around us ever lies the enchanted land, 
In marvels rich to thine own sons displayed. 

2 In finding thee are all things round us found ; 
In losing thee are all things lost beside ; 
Ears have we, but in vain sweet voices sound, 
And to our eyes the vision is denied. 

3 Open our eyes that we that world may see, 
Open our ears that we thy voice may hear, 
And in the spirit-land may ever be, 

And feel thy presence with us always near.

Against his messengers to shut the door ?

That we may live to glorify thy name, 

2 That we may conquer base desire and passion, 
That we may rise from selfish thought and will, 
O'ercome the world's allurement, threat, and fashion, 

Walk humbly, gently, leaning on thee still. 

3 Let all thy goodness by our minds be seen, 
Let all thy mercy on our souls be sealed : 
Lord, if thou wilt, thy power can make us clean ; 

Oh speak the word, thy servants shall be healed !

1 Ix holy books we read how God hath spoken 
To holy men in many different ways ; 

But hath the present worked no sign nor token ? 
Is God quite silent in these latter days ?

If he that spake it were not speaking still ; 
If all the light and all the shade around 

Were aught but issues of Almighty Will. 

8 So, then, believe that every bird that sings, 
And every flower that stars the elastic sod, 
And every thought the happy summer brings, 
To the pure spirit is a word of God.

As the faint lights of morning break ; 
Bid purest thoughts within me rise,

Or earth's low communings will soon 
Of thy dear face eclipse the light,

And if my heart from thee have strayed,

When sleep withholds her balmy power ; 
Let my lone spirit find its rest,

And, when its pulses cease to play, 
Then, Father, bid me come to thee, 
That where thou art thy child may be.

That God is love, and changes not,

But, when my faith is sharply tried,

Give me on thee to wait, 
Till I can all things do, — 

On thee, almighty to create, 
Almighty to renew. 

2 I want a sober mind, 
A self-renouncing will, 

That tramples down and casts behind 

The baits of pleasing ill ; 

A soul inured to pain, 

To hardship, grief, and loss ; 
Bold to take up, firm to sustain, 

The consecrated cross. 

3 I want a godly fear, 

A quick-discerning eye, 
That looks to thee when sin is near, 

And sees the tempter fly ; 

A spirit still prepared, 

And armed with jealous care, 
For ever standing on its guard, 

And watching unto prayer. 



4 I want a true regard, 
A single, steady aim, 

Unmoved by threatening or reward, 

To thee and thy great name ; 

A zealous, just concern 

For thine immortal praise ; 
A pure desire that all may learn, 

And glorify thy grace. 

5 I rest upon thy word ; 
The promise is for me ; 

My succor and salvation, Lord, 

Shall surely come from thee : 

But let me still abide, 

Nor from my hope remove, 
Till thou my patient spirit guide 

Into thy perfect love. 

Zoi). For a Holy Heart. Wb&lxtam 

1 Great Source of life and light. 

Thy heavenly grace impart, 
And by thy Holy Spirit write 

Thy law upon my heart : 

My soul would cleave to thee ; 

Let nought my purpose move ; 
Oh let my faith more steadfast be, 

And more intense my love !

In confidence and prayer !

" Do all to the Glory of God." Herbert. 



1 Teach me, my God and King, 
In all things thee to see ; 

And what I do in any thing, 
To do it as for thee : 

2 To scorn the senses 1 sway, 
While still to thee I tend ; 

In all I do, be thou the way, — 
In all be thou the end. 

3 All may of thee partake : 
Nothing so small can be, 

But draws, when acted for thy sake, 
Greatness and worth from thee. 



[ If done beneath thy laws, 
E'en servile labors shine ; 

Hallowed is toil if this the cause, 
The meanest work divine.

Call to Prayer. 



ANOJT 



1 Come to the morning prayer, — 
Come, let us kneel and pray : 

Prayer is the Christian pilgrim's staff, 
To walk with God all day. 

2 At noon, beneath the Rock 
Of Ages, rest and pray : 

Sweet is that shelter from the heat, 
When the sun smites by day. 

3 At evening, shut thy door, 
Round the home altar pray ; 

And, finding there the house of God, 
At heaven's gate close the day. 

4 When midnight veils our eyes, 
Oh it is sweet to say, 

I sleep, but my heart waketh, Lord, 
With thee to watch and pray !

For a Tender Conscience. C. Wesley. 



1 I want a principle within 

Of jealous, godly fear ; 
A sensibility to sin, 
A pain to find it near. 

2 I want the first approach to feel 

Of pride, or fond desire ; 
To catch the wandering of my will, 
And quench the kindling fire. 

3 From thee that I no more may part, 

No more thy goodness grieve, 
The filial awe, the fleshly heart, 
The tender conscience give. 

4 Quick as the apple of an eye, 

O God ! my conscience make ; 
Awake my soul when sin is nigh, 
And keep it still awake. 

^O'x. Prayer for Supplies of Grace. C. Wksl 

1 Thou Fount of blessing, God of love, 
To thee our hearts we raise ; 
Thine all-sustaining power we prove 
And gladly sing thy praise. 



2 Thine, wholly thine, we long to be ; 

Our sacrifice receive : 
Made and preserved and saved by thee, 
To thee ourselves we give. 

3 To thee our every wish aspires : 

For all thy mercy's store, 
The sole return thy love requires 
Is that we ask for more. 

4 For more we ask ; we open, Lord, 

Our hearts to embrace thy will : 
Renew us by thy quickening word. 
And from thy fulness fill.

Seeking the Knowledge of God. Doddiudo* 



1 Shine forth, Eternal Source of light, 

And make thy glories known ; 
Fill our enlarged, adoring sight 
With lustre all thy own. 

2 Vain are the charms and faint the rays 

The brightest creatures boast ; 
And all their grandeur and their praise 
Is in thy presence lost.

Walking with God. 



COWPEE. 



1 On for a closer walk with God, 

A calm and heavenly frame, 

A light to shine upon the road 

That leads me to the Lamb ! 

2 What peaceful hours I once enjoyed ! 

How sweet their memory still ! 
But now I find an aching void 
The world can never fill. 

3 Return, O holy Dove ! return, 

Sweet messenger of rest : 
I hate the sins that made thee mourn, 
And drove thee from my breast 



4 The dearest idol I have known, 
Whate'er that idol be, 
Help me to tear it from thy throne, 
And worship only thee. 



287 



• All Things work together for Good. FABKJt 



1 I worship thee, sweet will of God. 

And all thy ways adore ; 
And every day I live, I long 
To love thee more and more. 

2 Man's weakness, waiting upon God, 

Its end can never miss ; 
For man on earth no work can do 
More angel-like than this. 

3 He always wins who sides with God : 

To him no chance is lost ; 
God's will is sweetest to him when 
It triumphs at his cost. 

4 HI, that God blesses, is our good, 

And unblest good is ill ; 
And all is right that seems most wrong, 
If it be his dear will.

Oliver. 

1 Guide me, O thou great Jehovah ! 

Pilgrim through this barren land : 
t am weak, but thou art mighty ; 
Hold me with thy powerful hand : 

Bread of heaven, 
Feed me till I want no more. 

2 Open now the crystal fountain, 

Whence the healing streams do flow ; 
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar 

Lead me all my journey through : 

Strong Deliverer, 
Be thou still my strength and shield. 

3 AVhen I tread the verge of Jordan, 

Bid my anxious fears subside ; 
Bear me through the swelling current ; 
Land me safe on Canaan's side ; 

Songs of praises 
I will ever give to thee. 

ZO«l/. Upward and Onward. T. H. GILL. 

1 We the weak ones, we the sinners, 
Would not in our poorness stay ; 



We the low ones would be winners 
Of what holy height we may : 

Ever nearer 
To thy pure and perfect day. 

2 Shall things withered, fashions olden, 

Keep us from life's flowing spring ? 
Waits for us the promise golden, 
Waits each new diviner thing. 

Onward, onward : 
Why this faithless tarrying ? 

3 By each saving word unspoken ; 

By thy truth, as yet half won ; 
By each idol yet unbroken ; 
By thy will, yet poorly done ; 

Hear us, hear us, 
Thou Almighty ; help us on. 

4 Nearer to thee would we venture, 

Of thy truth more largely take. 
Upon life diviner enter, 

Into day more glorious break. 

To the ages 
Fair bequests and costly make.

^yU. T7ie Christian Encouraged. Grant. 

1 Know, my soul, thy full salvation ; 

Rise o'er sin and fear and care ; 
Joy to find, in even' station, 

Something still to do or bear. 
Think what spirit dwells within thee ; 

Think what Father's smiles are thine ; 
Think what Jesus did to win thee. 

Child of heaven, canst thou repine ? 

2 Haste thee on from grace to glory, 

Armed with faith and winged with 
prayer ; 
Heaven's eternal day's before thee, 

God's own hand shall guide thee there. 
Soon shall close thine earthly mission, 

Soon shall pass thy pilgrim-days ; 
Hope shall change to glad fruition, 

Faith to sight, and prayer to praise. 

UtJJL, Trust in God. T. Grinfield. 

1 Oh how kindly hast thou led me, 
Heavenly Father, day by day ; 
Found my dwelling, clothed and fed me, 

Furnished friends to cheer my way ! 
Didst thou bless me, didst thou chasten, 

With thy smile, or with thy rod, 
Twas that still my step might hasten 
Homeward, heavenward, to mv God 



Oh how slowly have I often 

Followed where thy hand would draw ! 
How thy kindness failed to soften ! 

How thy chastening failed to awe ! 
Make me for thy rest more ready 

As thy path is longer trod ; 
Keep me in thy friendship steady, 

Till thou call me home, mv God.

Shine amid the clouds of night ;

Breathe thy life and shed thy light.

Banish all our fears at length, 
Rest upon this congregation, 

Spirit of unfailing strength. 

2 Let that love which knows no measure, 

Now in quickening showers descend, 
Bringing us the richest treasure 

Man can wish or God can send : 
Hear our earnest supplication, 

Every struggling heart release ; 
Rest upon this congregation. 

Spirit of eternal peace.

Prayer a task and burden prove, 
Any duty give me pain, 

If I knew a Saviour's love ? 

3 When I turn mine eyes within, 
Oh how dark and vain and wild ! 
Prone to unbelief and sin, 

Can I deem myself thy child ? 

4 Yet I mourn my stubborn will, 
Find my sin a grief and thrall : 
Should I grieve for what I feel 
If I did not love at all ? 

5 Could I love the saints to meet, 
Choose the ways I once abhorred, 
Find at times the promise sweet, 
If I did not love thee, Lord ?

If I love at all, I pray : 

If I have not loved before, 
Help me to begin to-day.

Strengthen it with power divine, 
Till thy cords of love have bound it, —

To thee I raise my humble prayer. 

2 Endue me with a holy fear ; 
The frailty of my heart reveal : 
Sin and its snares are always near ; 
Thee may I always nearer feel. 

3 Oh that to thee my constant mind 
May with a steady flame aspire ; 
Fride in its earliest motions find, 
And check the rise of wrong desire ! 

4 Oh that my watchful soul may fly 
The first perceived approach of sin ; 
Look up to thee when danger's nigh, 
And feel thy fear control within !

And bless thee for the peace which flows

2 Though every earthly trust may break. 
Infinite might belongs to thee ; 
Though every earthly friend forsake, 
Unchangeable thou still wilt be. 

3 Though clouds may gather darkly round, 
They cannot veil us from thy sight ; 
Though vain all human aid be found, 
Thou every grief canst turn to light. 

4 All things thy wise designs fulfil, 

In earth beneath, and heaven above ; 
And good breaks out from every ill, 
Through faith in thine encircling love.

And o'er me hold thy shield of power, 
To guard me in the dangerous hour.

So flows the grace he waits to give ; 
Long as they live should Christians pray 
They learn to pray when first they live. 

2 If pain afflict or wrongs oppress, 
If cares distract or fears dismay, 
If guilt deject, if sin distress, 

In every need still watch and pray. 

3 'Tis prayer supports the soul that's weak, 
Though poor and broken be its word : 
Pray if thou canst, or canst not, speak ; 
The breathings of the soul are heard. 

4 Depend on him ; thou shalt prevail : 
Make all thy wants and wishes known ; 
Fear not, his mercy will not fail ; 

Ask but in faith, it shall be done

Or in the desert bare, 
Strike but thy rod, the purest rills 
And greenest herbs are there.

The sounds my ear that greet, — 
Calm in the closet's solitude, 
Calm in the bustling street ; 

3 Calm in my hour of buoyant health, 

Calm in my hour of pain ; 

Calm in my poverty or wealth, 

Calm in my loss or gain ; 

4 Calm in the sufferance of wrong, 

Like him who bore my shame ; 
Calm 'mid the threatening, taunting 
throng 
Who hate thy holy name ; 

5 Calm as the ray of sun or star, 

Which storms assail in vain ; 
Moving unruffled through earth's war, 
The eternal calm to gain.

What is Prayer ? 



Montgomery. 



1 Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, 

Unuttered or expressed ; 
The motion of a hidden fire, 
That trembles in the breast. 

2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, 

The falling of a tear ; 
The upward glancing of an eye, 
When none but God is near. 

3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech 

That infant lips can try ; 
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach 
The Majesty on high. 

4 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, 

The Christian's native air ; 
His watchword at the gates of death : 
lie enters heaven by prayer. 

5 O Thou by whom we come to God, — 

The Life, the Truth, the Way ! 
The path of prayer thyself hast trod ; 
Lord, teach us how to pray. 



0\j\j, For a Revival. S. F. SMITH 

1 Spirit of God, thy churches wait, 

With wishful, longing eyes : 
Let us no more lie desolate ; 
Oh bid thy light arise ! 

2 The light that on our souls hath shone 

Leads us in hope to thee : 
Let us not feel its rays alone, — 
Alone thy people be. 

3 Oh bring our dearest friends to God ! 

Remember those we love ;

OlU. Prayer for Strong Faith. BATH COL. 

1 Oh for a faith that will not shrink, 

Though pressed by every foe ; 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of any earthly woe ; 

2 That will not murmur nor complain 

Beneath the chastening rod, 
But, in the hour of grief or pain, 
Will lean upon its God ; —

3 A faith that shines more bright and clear 

"When tempests rage •without ; 
That, when in danger, knows no fear, 
In darkness, feels no doubt ; 

4 A faith that keeps the narrow way 

Till life's last hour is fled, 
And, with a pure and heavenly ray, 
Lights up a dying bed !

T. MOORE. 



1 The dove, let loose in eastern skies, 

Returning fondly home, 
Ne'er stoops to earth her wing, nor flies 
Where idle warbleis roam : 

2 But high she shoots through air and light, 

Above all low delay ; 
"Where nothing earthly bounds her flight, 
Nor shadow dims her way. 

3 So grant me, Lord, from every snare 

Of sinful passion free, 
Aloft, through faith's serener air, 
To urge my course to thee ; 



4 No sin to cloud, no lure to stay 
My soul, as home she springs, 
Thy sunshine on her joyful way, 
Thy freedom in her wings.

For the Spirit of Truth. E. SCUDDER. 



1 Thou long disowned, reviled, oppressed, 

Strange friend of human kind, 
Seeking through weary years a rest 
"Within our hearts to find, — 

2 How late thy bright and awful brow 

Breaks through these clouds of sin ! 
Hail, Truth divine ! we know thee now : 
Angel of God, come in. 

3 Anoint our eyes with healing grace, 

To see, as ne'er before, 
Our Father in our brother's face, 
Our Maker in his poor. 

4 Flood our dark life with golden day ; 

Convince, subdue, enthrall : 
Then to a mightier yield thy sway, 
And Love be all in all.

1 O Source of uncreated light, 

By whom the worlds were raised from 

night, 
Come, visit every pious mind ; 
Come, pour thy joys on human kind. 

2 Plenteous in grace, descend from high, 
Rich in thy matchless energy ; 

From sin and sorrow set us free, 
And make us temples worthy thee. 

8 Cleanse and refine our earthly parts, 
Inflame and sanctify our hearts, 
Our frailties help, our vice control, 
Submit the senses to the soul. 

4 Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire ! 
Our' hearts with heavenly love inspire ; 
Make us eternal truths receive ; 
Aid us to live as we believe.

1 Blest Spirit, source of grace divine, 
What soul-refreshing streams are thine ! 
Oh bring these healing waters nigh, 
Or we must droop and fall and die ! 



2 No traveller through desert lands, 
'Mid scorching suns and burning sands, 
More eager longs for cooling rain, 

Or pants the current to obtain. 

3 Our longing souls aloud would sing, 
Spring up, celestial fountain, spring ; 
To a redundant river flow, 

And cheer this thirsty land below. 

4 May this blest river, near my side, 
Through all my journey gently glide ; 
Then, in Emanuel's land above, 
Spread to a sea of joy and love. 

OlO. " Not by Might, but by my Spirit." Topladt. 

1 At anchor laid, remote from home, 
Toiling, I cry, Sweet Spirit, come ; 
Celestial breeze, no longer stay, 

But swell my sails and speed my way. 

2 Fain would I mount, fain would I glow, 
And loose my cable from below : 

But I can only spread my sail ; 
Thou, thou must breathe the auspicious 
gale.

Give me the easy yoke to bear :

So shall each murmuring thought be gone ;

In whom we float as motes in summer sky, 
May neither life nor death the sweet bond sever 
Which joins us to our unseen Friend on high !

It is thy breath, O God ! which fans the fire.

And thou hast made each step an onward one ; 
And we will ever trust each unknown morrow, — 
Thou wilt sustain us till its work is done.

Abides ; and when pain seems to have its will, 
Or we despair, oh may that peace rise slowly, 
Stronger than agony, and we be still !

"Who by searching can find out God?" 

1 I cannot find thee. Still on restless pinion 

My spirit beats the void where thou dost dwell ; 
I wander lost through all thy vast dominion, 
And shrink beneath thy light ineffable. 

2 I cannot find thee. Even when most adoring, 

Before thy shrine 1 bend in lowliest prayer; 
Beyond these bounds of thought, my thought upsoaring, 
From furthest quest comes back : thou art not there. 

3 Yet high above the limits of my seeing, 

And folded far within the inmost heart, 
And deep below the deeps of conscious being, 
Thy splendor shineth : there, O God ! thou art. 

4 I cannot lose thee. Still in thee abiding, 

The end is clear, how wide soe'er I roam ; 
The law that holds the worlds my steps is guiding, 
And I must rest at last in thee, my home.

The Calm of the Soul. 

1 When winds are raging o'er the upper ocean, 

And billows wild contend with angry roar, 
'Tis said, far down beneath the wild commotion, 
That peaceful stillness reigneth evermore. 

2 Far, far beneath, the noise of tempests dieth, 

And silver waves chime ever peacefully ; 

And no rude storm, how fierce soe'er it flieth, 

Disturbs the sabbath of that deeper sea. 

3 So to the heart that knows thy love, O Purest ! 

There is a temple, sacred evermore ; 
And all the Babel of life's angry voices 

Dies in hushed stillness at its peaceful door. 

4 Far, far away, the roar of passion dieth, 

And loving thoughts rise calm and peacefully ; 
And no rude storm, how fierce soe'er it flieth, 
Disturbs the soul that dwells, O Lord ! in thee.

" Still with Thee." MBS. H. B. STOW*. 

Still, still with thee, when purple morning breaketh, 

When the bird waketh and the shadows flee ; 
Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight, 

Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with thee.

2 Alone with thee, amid the mystic shadows, 

The solemn hush of nature newly born ; 
Alone with thee in breathless adoration, 
In the calm dew and freshness of the morn. 

3 As in the dawning, o'er the waveless ocean, 

The image of the morning star doth rest, 
So in this stillness thou beholdest only 
Thine image in the waters of my breast. 

4 When sinks the soul, subdued by toil, to slumber, 

Its closing eye looks up to thee in prayer ; 
Sweet the repose beneath thy wings o'ershading, 
But sweeter still to wake and find thee there. 

5 So shall it be at last, in that bright morning 

When the soul waketh and life's shadows flee : 
Oh in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning, 
Shall rise the glorious thought, I am with thee. 

" A little while, and ye see me." BoiTAK 

1 Oh for the peace that floweth as a river, 

Making life's desert places bloom and smile ; 
Oh for that faith to grasp the glad Forever, 
Amid the shadows of earth's Little While ! 

2 A little while for patient vigil keeping, 

To face the storm, to wrestle with the strong; 
A little while to sow the seed with weeping, 

Then bind the sheaves and sing the harvest-song ; 

3 A little while to wear the veil of sadness, 

To toil with weary step through miry ways, 
Then to pour forth the fragrant oil of gladness, 
And clasp the girdle round the robe of Praise ; 

4 A little while, 'mid shadow and illusion, 

To strive by faith love's mysteries to spell, 
Then read each dark enigma's bright solution, 

Then hail sight's verdict, — He doth ail things well. 

5 And He who is himself the Gift and Giver, 

The future glory and the present smile, 
With the bright promise of the glad Forever 
Will light the shadows of earth's Little While.

Even though it be a cross

Still all my song shall be, 
|| : Nearer, my God, to thee, :|| 

Nearer to thee.

Daylight all gone,

Steps unto heaven ; 

All that thou sendest me

Bright with thy praise, 
Out of my stony griefs, 

Bethel Til raise ; 
So by my woes to be 
|| : Nearer, my God, to thee, :|| 
Nearer to thee. 



Or if on joyful wing, 

Cleaving the sky, 
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, 

Upward I fly, —

And, as it hastens, every age 

But makes its brightness more divine. 

2 On mightier wing, in loftier flight, 
From year to year does knowledge soar ; 
And, as it soars, the gospel light 

Adds to its influence more and more. 

3 More glorious still as centuries roll, 
New regions blest, new powers unfurled, 
Expanding with the expanding soul, 

Its waters shall o'erfiow the world : — 

4 Flow to restore, but not destroy ; 
As when the cloudless lamp of day 
Pours out its flood of light and joy, 
And sweeps each lingering mist away.

In every star thy wisdom shines :

Round the whole earth, and never stand ; 
So, when thy truth began its race, 

It touched and glanced on every land 

3 Nor shall thy spreading gospel rest 

Till through the world thy truth has run , 
Till Christ has all the nations blest, 
That see the light or feel the sun.

And, with celestial wisdom filled, 
To thee its full obedience yield 

3 Give me to know thy words aright,

That, purged from thirst of gold, my mind 
In them its better wealth may find.

At evening's calm and holy hour, 

As if its inmost depths discerned 
The presence of a loftier power ? 

2 Hast thou not heard 'mid forest glades, 
While ancient rivers murmured by, 

A voice from forth the eternal shades, 
That spake a present Deity ? 

3 And as, upon the sacred page, 
Thine eye in rapt attention turned 
O'er records of a holier age, 

Hath not thy heart within thee burned ? 

4 It was the voice of God that spake 
In silence to thy silent heart ; 

And bade each worthier thought awako 
And every dream of earth depart. 

5 Voice of our God, oh yet be near ! 

In low, sweet accents, whisper peace ; 

Direct us on our pathway here, 

Then bid in heaven our wanderings cease

It calls dead sinners from their tombs, 
And gives the blind their sight.

And all thy judgments just ! 

For ever sure thy promise, Lord,

Upon the souls of men ; 

So fresh the dreaming world awoke 
In truth's full radiance then. 

3 Before yon sun arose, 

Stars clustered through the sky ; 
But oh how dim, how pale, were those, 
To his one burning eye ! 

4 So truth lent many a ray, 
To bless the pagan's night ; 

But, Lord, how faint, how cold were they, 
To thy one glorious light !

Move glorious on, — send out thy voice 
To all the nations round. 

2 With hearts and lips unfeigned, 
We bless thee for thy word ; 

We praise thee for the joyful news 
Which our glad ears have heard.

J Oh may we treasure well 

The counsels that we hear, 
Till righteousness and holy joy 

In all our hearts appear ! 

L Water the sacred seed, 

And give it large increase ; 
May neither fowls nor rocks nor thorns 

Prevent the fruits of peace ! 

> And though we sow in tears, 
Our souls at last shall come, 

And gather in our sheaves with joy, 
At heaven's great harvest-home.

Father, to me impart ; 

The Spirit's law of life divine, 
Oh write it in my heart ! 

2 Implant it deep -within, 
Whence it may ne'er remove, — 

The law of liberty from sin, 
The perfect law of love. 



I Thy nature be my law, 

Thy spotless sanctity, 
And sweetly every moment draw 

My happy soul to thee.

It is nigh thee, in thy heart." BARTOJT. 



1 Say not the law divine 
Is hidden far from thee : 

That heavenly law within may shine, 
And there its brightness be. 

2 Soar not, my soul, on high, 
To bring it down to earth : 

No star within the vaulted sky 
Is of such priceless worth. 

3 Thou need'st not launch thy bark 
Upon a shoreless sea, 

Breasting its waves to find the ark, 
To bring this dove to thee. 

4 Cease, then, my soul, to roam; 
Thy wanderings all are vain : 

That holy word is found at home ; 
Within thy heart its reign.

Q4.Q " ^ lt Word of God endurethfor ever." 
^ > ^ < - ) * Sir R. Grant. 

1 The starry firmament on high, 
And all the glories of the sky, 

Yet shine not to thy praise, O Lord ! 
So brightly as thy written word. 

2 The hopes that holy word supplies, 
Its truths divine and precepts wise, — 
In each a heavenly beam I see, 

And every beam conducts to thee. 

3 Almighty Lord, the sun shall fail, 
The moon forget her nightly tale, 
And deepest silence hush on high 
The radiant chorus of the sky ; 

4 But fixed for everlasting years, 
Unmoved amid the wreck of spheres, 
Thy word shall shine in cloudless day, 
When heaven and earth have passed away.

Thy Word is a Lamp unto my feet." Anon. 



1 Lamp of our feet, whose hallowed beam 
Deep in our hearts its dwelling hath, 
How welcome is the cheering gleam 
Thou sheddest o'er our lowly path ! 



2 Light of our way, whose rays are flung 
In mercy o'er our pilgrim road, 

How blessed, its dark shades among. 
The star that guides us to our God ! 

3 Lamp of our feet, which day by day 
Are passing to the quiet tomb, 

If on it fall thy peaceful ray, 

Our last low dwelling hath no gloom. 

4 How beautiful their calm repose 
To whom thy blessed hope is given, 
Whose pilgrimage on earth is closed 
By the unfolding gates of heaven !

1 There is a stream, whose gentle flow 
Supplies the city of our God ; 

Life, love, and joy still gliding through, 
And watering our divine abode 

2 That sacred stream, thine holy word. 
That all our raging fear controls : 
Sweet peace thy promises afford, 

And jrive new strength to fainting souls.

QA. f\ The Scriptures our Light and Guide. 

^^U. BEDDOME. 

1 How glorious is thy word, O God ! 
'Tis for our light and guidance given ; 
It sheds a lustre all abroad, 

And points the path to bliss and heaven. 

2 It fills the soul with sweet delight, 
And quickens its inactive powers ; 

It sets our wandering footsteps right, 
Displays thy love, and kindles ours. 

3 Its promises rejoice our hearts ; 
Its doctrines are divinely true ; 
Knowledge and pleasure it imparts ; 
It comforts and instructs us too. 

4. Ye favored lands who have this word, 
Ye saints who feel its saving power, 
Unite your tongues to praise the Lord, 
And his distinguished grace adore. 

O a: i • Excellence of the Gospel. Beddome. 

1 God, in the gospel of his Son, 
Makes his eternal counsels known : 
'Tis here his richest mercy shines, 
And truth is drawn in fairest lines. 



2 Wisdom its dictates here imparts, 

To form our minds, to cheer our hearts : 
Its influence makes the sinner live ; 
It bids the drooping saint revive. 

3 Our raging passions it controls, 
And comfort yields to contrite souls ; 
It brings a better world in view, 

And guides us all our journey through. 

4 May this blest volume ever lie 
Close to my heart, and near my eye, 
Till life's last hour my soul engage, 
And be my chosen heritage ! 

QJ-ft Divine Love in Nature and the Word. 

* EXETEK COfc 

1 To thee my heart, Eternal King, 
Would now its thankful tribute bring ; 
To thee its humble homage raise, 

In songs of ardent, grateful praise. 

2 All nature shows thy boundless love, 
In worlds below and worlds above ; 
But in thy blessed word I trace 
The richer glories of thy grace.

The Mission of Christ. Doddridge 



1 Hark the glad sound, the Saviour comes, 

The Saviour promised long : 
Let every heart prepare a throne, 
And every voice a song. 

2 On him the Spirit, largely poured, 

Exerts its sacred fire ; 
Wisdom and might and zeal and love 
His holy breast inspire. 

3 He comes, from thickest films of vice 

To clear the mental ray, 
And on the eyeballs of the blind 
To pour celestial day. 

4 He comes, the broken heart to bind, 

The bleeding soul to cure, 
And with the treasures of his grace 
To enrich the humble poor. 



5 Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace, 
Thy welcome shall proclaim, 
And heaven's eternal arches ring 
With thy beloved name. 

OOU. The Corning of Christ. S. W. LlVERMOBB. 

1 Glory to God, and peace on earth. 

Was once by angels sung ; 
Glad tidings of a Saviour's birth 
Through plains of Bethlehem rung. 

2 Glory to God ! the gospel's sound, 

Our churches echo still : 
Spread it, O Lord ! the world around, 
And with its spirit fill. 

3 Glory to God ! our hearts acclaim : 

Oh ! haste the happy time 
When songs shall sound the Saviour's 
name 
O'er every distant clime.

1 The race that long in darkness pined 

Have seen a glorious light; 
The people dwell in day, who dwelt 
In death's surrounding night. 

2 To hail thy rise, thou better Sun, 

The gathering nations come, 

Joyous as when the reapers bear 

The harvest treasures home. 

3 To us a child of hope is born ; 

To us a Son is given ; 
Him shall the tribes of earth obey, — 
Him, all the hosts of heaven. 

4 His name shall be the Prince of Peace, 

Whose rule shall stretch abroad ; 
The Wonderful, the Counsellor, 
The great and mighty Lord. 

5 His power increasing still shall spread ; 

His reign no end shall know ; 
Justice shall guard his throne above, 
And peace abound below. 



OOjiJ, Example of Christ. ENFIELD. 

1 Behold where, in a mortal form 

Appears each grace divine ! 
The virtues, all in Jesus met, 
With mildest radiance shine. 

2 To spread the rays of heavenly light, 

To give the mourner joy, 
To preach glad tidings to the poor, 
Was his divine employ. 

3 'Mid keen reproach and cruel scorn, 

Patient and meek he stood : 
His foes, ungrateful, sought his life ; 
He labored for their good. 

4 In the last hour of deep distress, 

Before his Father's throne, 
With soul resigned he bowed, and said, 
" Thy will, not mine, be done." 

5 Be Christ our pattern and our guide } 

His image may we bear ! 
Oh may we tread his holy steps, 
His joy and glory share !

7%« Nativity. 



E. H. Sears. 



1 Calm, on the listening ear of night, 

Come heaven's melodious strains, 
Where wild Judzea stretches far 
Her silver-mantled plains. 

2 Celestial choirs, from courts above, 

Shed sacred glories there ; 
And angels, with their sparkling lyres, 
Make music on the air. 

3 The answering hills of Palestine 

Send back the glad reply ; 
And greet, from all their holy heights, 
The day-spring from on high. 

1 ( Ver the blue depths of Galilee, 
There comes a holier calm ; 
And Sharon waves, in solemn praise, 
Her silent groves of palm. 

5 " Glory to God," the sounding skies 
Loud with their anthems ring ; 
"Peace to the earth, good-will to men, 
From heaven's Eternal King ! " 



6 Light on thy hills, Jerusalem ! 
The Saviour now is born ; 
And bright, on Bethlehem's joyous plains. 
Breaks the first Christmas morn.

The Day- Spring from on High. Ps. 130. 

Spirit or the Psalms, 



Great God, wert thou extreme to mark 

The deeds we do amiss, 
Before thy presence who could stand, 

Who claim thy promised bliss ? 
But oh ! all merciful and just, 

Thy love surpasseth thought : 
A gracious Saviour has appeared, 

And peace and pardon brought. 

Thy servants in the temple watched 

The dawning of the day, 
Impatient with its earliest beams 

Their holy vows to pay ; 
And chosen saints far off beheld 

That great and glorious morn, 
When the glad day-spring from on high 

Auspiciously should dawn.

On us the Sun of Righteousness 

Its brightest beams hath poured ;

Before whose brightness sin and death 

And grief shall flee away.

The AngeVs Song. E. H. Sears. 



1 It came upon the midnight clear, 

That glorious song of old, 
From angels bending near the earth 

To touch their harps of gold : 
" Peace on the earth, good-will to men 

From heaven's all-gracious King." 
The world in solemn stillness lay 

To hear the angels sing. 

2 Still through the cloven skies they come, 

With peaceful wings unfurled ; 
And still their heavenly music floats 
O'er all the weary world : 



Above its sad and lowly plains 
They bend on hovering wing, 

And ever o'er its Babel sounds 
The blessed angels sing. 



But with the woes of sin and strife 

The world has suffered long ; 
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled 

Two thousand years of wrong ; 
And man, at war with man, hears not 

The love-song which they bring : 
Oh ! hush the noise, ye men of strife 

And hear the angels sing. 



And ye, beneath life's crushing load 

Whose forms are bending low, 
Who toil along the climbing way, 

With painful steps and slow, — 
Look now ; for glad and golden hours 

Come swiftly on the wing : 
Oh rest beside the weary road. 

And hear the angels sing .

ODO. Effects of the Mission of Christ. Watts. 

1 Joy to the world ! the Lord is come : 

Let earth receive her King ; 
Let every heart prepare him room, 
And heaven and nature sing. 

2 Joy to the earth ! the Saviour reigns : 

Let men their songs employ, [plains, 
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and 
Repeat the sounding joy. 

3 No more let sins and sorrows grow, 

Nor thorns infest the ground : 
He comes to make his blessings flow 
As far as sin is found. 

4 He rules the world with truth and grace, 

And makes the nations prove 
The glories of his righteousness, 
And wonders of his love. 

di) i . Tlie Guiding Star. Spimt or the Psalms. 

1 Bright was the guiding star that led, 
With mild, benignant ray, 
The Gentiles to the lowly shed 
Where the Redeemer lay. 



2 But, lo ! a brighter, clearer light, 

Now points to his abode : 
It shines through sin and sorrow's night, 
To guide us to our Lord. 

3 Oh haste to follow where it leads ! 

The gracious call obey, 
Be rugged wilds or flowery meads 
The Christian's destined way. 

4 Oh gladly tread the narrow path, 

While light and grace are given : 
Who meekly follow Christ on earth 



Shall reign with him in heaven.

And every heart rejoice :

And vainly strive, with earthly toys, 
To fill an empty mind, —

Divine Attestation of Christ. Exeter col. 



1 See from on high a light divine 

On Jesus 1 head descend ; 
And hear the sacred voice from heaven, 
That bids us all attend. 

2 " This is my well-beloved Son," 

Proclaimed the voice divine ; 
* Hear him," his heavenly Father said, 
" For all his words are mine." 



3 His mission thus confirmed from heaven, 

The great Messiah came, 
And heavenly wisdom showed to man 
In God his Father's name. 

4 The path of heavenly peace he showed, 

That leads to bliss on high ; 
Where all his faithful followers here 
Shall live, no more to die.

1 O'er mountain tops, the mount of God 

In latter days shall rise 
Above the summits of the hills, 
And draw the wondering eyes. 

2 To this the joyful nations round, 

All tribes and tongues, shall flow: 
Up to the mount of God, they say, 
And to his house well go. 

3 The beams that shine from Zion's hill 

Shall lighten every land ; 
The king who reigns in Salem's towers 
Shall the whole world command.

See that glory-beaming star ! 
Watchman, does its beauteous ray 
Aught of hope or joy foretell ? 
Traveller, yes ; it brings the day, — 
Promised day of Israel. 

2 Watchman, tell us of the night : 
Higher yet that star ascends. 
Traveller, blessedness and light, 
Peace and truth, its course portends. 
Watchman, will its beams alone 
Gild the spot that gave them birth? 
Traveller, ages are its own : 

See ! it bursts o'er all the earth. 

3 Watchman, tell us of the night; 
For the morning seems to dawn. 
Traveller, darkness takes its flight, 
Doubt and terror are withdrawn. 
Watchman, let thy wanderings cease : 
Hie thee to thy quiet home. 
Traveller, lo ! the Prince of Peace, 
Lo ! the Son of God, is come.

Born to raise the sons of earth ;

2 But a beam of holier light 
Gilded Bethlehem's lonely night, 
When the glory of the Lord, 
Mercy's sunlight, shone abroad. 

3 " Peace on earth, good-will to men," 
Burst the glorious anthem then ; 
Angels, bending from above, 
Joined that strain of holy love. 

4 Floating o'er the waves of time 
Comes to us that song sublime, 
Bearing to the pilgrim's ear 
Words to soothe, sustain, and cheer.

Praise to thee, thou God of night ! 
Seraph-strains thy name should bless 
For the Sun of Righteousness.

Piercing through the shades of death, 
Scattering error's wide-spread night,

Haste to see your Lord appear ; 
Haste : for him your hearts prepare, 
Meet him manifested there.

Pouring light on mortal eyes ; 
See it chase the shades away, 
Shining to the perfect day !

Ne'er through faintness lay it down ; 
First the cross, and then the crown.

Gentiles coming into the Church. 

1 Rise, crowned with light, imperial Salem, rise ; 
Exalt thy towering head, and lift thine eyes ; 
See heaven its sparkling portals wide display, 
And break upon thee in a flood of day ! 

2 See a long race thy spacious courts adorn ! 
See future sons and daughters, yet unborn, 
In crowding ranks on every side arise, 
Demanding life, impatient for the skies. 

3 See barbarous nations at thy gates attend, 
Walk in thy light, and in thy temple bend ! 

See thy bright altars thronged with prostrate kings, 
While every land its joyous tribute brings !

Rocks fall to dust, and mountains melt away : 
But fixed his word ; his saving power remains; 
Thy realm shall last, thy own Messiah reigns.

1 O thou great Friend to all the sons of men, 
Who once appeared in humblest guise below, 
Sin to rebuke, to break the captive's chain, 

And call thy brethren forth from want and woe ! — 

2 We look to thee : thy truth is still the light 
Which guides the nations, groping on their way, 
Stumbling and falling in disastrous night, 

Yet hoping ever for the perfect day. 

3 Yes : thou art still the Life ; thou art the Way 

The holiest know, — Light, Life, and Way of heaven : 
And they who dearest hope, and deepest pray, 
Toil by the light, life, way, which thou hast given. 

The Tomb of Christ. Bonab 

1 Here shall death's triumph end : the rock-barred door 
Is opened wide, and the great prisoner gone ; 

Look round and see, upon the vacant floor, 
The napkin and the grave-clothes lie alone. 

2 Yes : death's last hope, his strongest fort and prison, 
Is shattered, never to be built again ; 

And he, the mighty captive, — he is risen, 
Leaving behind the gate, the bar, the chain. 

3 Yes : he is risen who is the First and Last, 
Who was and is, who liveth and was dead : 
Beyond the reach of death he now has passed,

" lam the Light of the World." Needham. 



1 Behold ! the Prince of Peace, 
The chosen of the Lord, 

God's well-beloved Son, fulfils 
The sure prophetic word. 

2 No royal pomp adorns 
This King of Righteousness : 

Meekness and patience, truth and love, 
Compose his princely dress. 

3 The Spirit of the Lord, 
In rich abundance shed, 

On this great prophet gently lights, 
And rests upon his head. 

4 Jesus, thou Light of men, 
Thy doctrine life imparts : 

Oh may we feel its quickening power, 
To warm and glad our hearts ! 

5 Cheered by its beams, our souls 
Shall run the heavenly way : 

The path which Christ has marked and trod 
Will lead to endless day. 



i JL . The Power of the Cross. Doddridge. 

1 Behold the amazing sight, — 
The Saviour lifted high ! 

Behold the Son of God's delight 
Expire in agony ! 

2 For whom, for whom, my heart, 
Were all these sorrows borne ? 

Why did he feel that piercing smart, 
And meet that various scorn ? 

3 For love of us he bled, 
And all in torture died ; 

'Twas love that bowed his fainting head, 
And oped his gushing side. 

4 I see, and I adore, 
In sympathy of love ; 

I feel the strong, attractive power 
To lift my soul above. 

5 In thee our hearts unite, 
Nor share thy griefs alone, 

But from thy cross pursue their flight, 
To thy triumphant throne.

The Infant Jesus. 



1 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning, 

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid ; 
Star of the east, the horizon adorning, 
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid. 

2 Cold on his cradle the dew-drops are shining, 

Low lies his head with the beasts of the stall, 
Angels adore him in slumber reclining, 
Chosen of God, the Redeemer of all. 

3 Say shall we yield him, in costly devotion, 

Odors of Edom, and offerings divine ? 
Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 
Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine ? 

4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation ; 

Vainly with gifts would his favors secure : 
Richer by far is the heart's adoration ; 

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

Towering o'er the wrecks of time :

Never shall -the cross forsake me :

Jesus preaching the Gospel. Bowring. 



1 How sweetly flowed the gospel's sound 
From lips of gentleness and grace, 
When listening thousands gathered round, 
And joy and reverence filled the place ! 

2 From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke, 
To heaven he led his followers 1 way ; 
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke, 
Unveiling an immortal day. 

3 " Come, wanderers, to my Father's home ; 
Come, all ye weary ones, and rest." 
Yes, sacred Teacher, we will come, 
Obey thee, love thee, and be blest

Pillars of earthly pride, decay : 
A nobler mansion waits the just, 
And Jesus has prepared the way

Drawn out in living characters. 

2 Such was thy truth and such thy zeal, 
Such deference to thy Father's will, 
Such love and meekness so divine, — 

I would transcribe, and make them mine. 

3 Cold mountains and the midnight air 
Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer ; 
The desert thy temptations knew, 
Thy conflict and thy victory too. 

4 Be thou my pattern : may I bear 
More of thy gracious image here ! 
Then God, the Judge, shall own my name 
Amongst the followers of the Lamb.

QQQ u Greater love hath no man than this." 

ooo. BACHBi 

1 "See how he loved!" exclaimed the 
As tender tears from Jesus fell : [Jews, 
My grateful heart the thought pursues, 
And on the theme delights to dwell. 

2 See how he loved, who travelled on, 
Teaching the doctrine from the skies ; 
Who bade disease and pain be gone, 
And called the sleeping dead to rise ! 

8 See how he loved, who, firm yet mild, 
Patient endured the scoffing tongue ! 
Though oil provoked, he ne'er reviled, 
Or did his greatest foe a wrong. 

4 See how he loved, who never shrank 
From toil or danger, pain or death ; 
Who all the cup of sorrow drank, 
And meekly yielded up his breath ! 

5 Such love can we unmoved survey ? 
Oh may our breasts with ardor glow 
To tread his steps, his laws obey, 
And thus our warm affections show I

u He hath not where to lay his head." 



1 O'er the dark wave of Galilee 
The gloom of twilight gathers fast, 
And on the waters drearily 
Descends the fitful evening blast. 

2 The weary bird hath left the air, 
And sunk into his sheltered nest ; 

The wandering beast has sought his lair, 
And laid him down to welcome rest. 

3 Still, near the lake, with weary tread, 
Lingers a form of human kind ; 

And on his lone, unsheltered head 
Flows the chill night-damp of the wind. 

4 Why seeks he not a home of rest ? 
Why seeks he not a pillowed bed ? 
Beasts have their dens, the bird its nest , 
lie hath not where to lay his head. 

5 Such was the lot he freely chose, 
To bless, to save the human race ; 
And through his poverty there flows 
A rich, full stream of heavenly grace.

11 WftA his stripes we are healed." AXON. 



1 A voice upon the midnight air, 
Where Kedron's moonlit waters stray, 
Weeps forth in agony and prayer, 

'* O Father ! take this cup away." 

2 Ah ! thou who sorrow'st unto death, 
We conquer in thy mortal fray ; 
And earth for all her children saith, 
" O God ! take not this cup away." 

3 O Lord of sorrow ! meekly die ; 
Thou^lt heal or hallow all our woe ; 
Thy name refresh the mourner's sigh ; 
Thy peace revive the faint and low. 

4 Great Chief of faithful souls, arise ; 
Xone else can lead the martyr band, 
Who teach the brave how peril flies, 
When faith, unarmed, uplifts the hand. 

6 O King of earth ! the cross ascend : 
O'er climes and ages, 'tis thy throne ; 
Where'er thy fading eye may bend, 
The desert blooms, and is thine own. 



6 Thy parting blessing, Lord, we pray: 
Make but one fold below, above ; 
And when we go the last, lone way, 
Oh give the welcome of thy love !

Thy will be done." 



AXOH. 



1 Lord, in thy garden agony, 

No light seemed on thy soul to break, 
No form of seraph lingered nigh, 
Nor yet the voice of comfort spake, — 

2 Till, by thine own triumphant word, 
The victory over ill was won ; 

Till the sweet, mournful cry was heard, 
" Thy will, O God ! not mine, be done." 

3 Lord, bring these precious moments back, 
When, fainting, against sin we strain ; 
Or in thy counsels fail to track 

Aught but the present grief and pain. 

4 In weakness, help us to contend ; 
In darkness, yield to God our will ; 
And true hearts, faithful to the end, 
Cheer by thine holy angels still.

Invitations of Jesus. Mrs. Barbauld. 



' Come, said Jesus 1 sacred voice, — 
Come, and make my paths your choice ; 
I will guide you to your home : 
Weary pilgrim, hither come. 

2 Thou who, houseless, sole, forlorn, 
Long hast borne the proud world's scorn, 
Long hast roamed the barren waste, 
Weary pilgrim, hither haste. 

3 Ye who, tossed on beds of pain, 
Seek for ease, but seek in vain ; 
Ye whose swoln and sleepless eyes 
Watch to see the morning rise ; 

1 Ye, by fiercer anguish torn, 
In remorse for guilt who mourn, — 
Here repose your heavy care : 
A wounded spirit who can bear ? 

5 Sinner, come ; for here is found 
Balm tli at flows for every wound, 
Peace that ever shall endure, 
Rest eternal, sacred, sure.

" Lovest thou Me ? " 



COWPEB. 



1 Hark, my soul, it is the Lord; 
Tis thy Saviour : hear his word. 
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee, 

" Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me? 

2 "I delivered thee when bound, 

And, when bleeding, healed thy wound; 
Sought thee wandering, set thee right ; 
Turned thy darkness into light. 

3 " Mine is an unchanging love, 
Higher than the heights above, 
Deeper than the depths beneath, 
Free and faithful, strong as death. 

4 " Thou shalt see my glory soon, 
When the work of grace is done ; 
Partner of my throne shalt be : 
Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me ? " 

5 Lord, it is my chief complaint 
That my love is cold and faint ; 
Yet I love thee, and adore : 
Oh for crace to love thee more !

1 Feeble, helpless, how shall I 
Learn to live, and learn to die ? 
Who, O God ! my guide shall be ? 
Who shall lead thy child to thee ? 

2 Blessed Father, gracious One, 
Thou hast sent thy holy Son : 
He will give the light I need ; 
He my trembling steps will lead. 

3 Through this world, uncertain, dim, 
Let me ever lean on him ; 

From his precepts wisdom draw, 
Make his life my solemn law. 

4 Thus, in deed and thought and word, 
Led by Jesus Christ the Lord, 

In my weakness, thus shall I 
Learn to live, and learn to die ; — 

5 Learn to live in peace and love, 
Like the perfect ones above ; 
Learn to die without a fear, 
Feeling thee, my Father, near.

Christ's Sufferings our Strength. ANOH. 



1 When my love to Christ grows weak. 
When for deeper faith I seek, - 
Then in thought I go to thee, 
Garden of Gethsemane. 

2 There I walk amid the shades, 
While the lingering twilight fades ; 
See that suffering, friendless one 
Weeping, praying, there alone. 

3 When my love for Christ grows weak, 
When for stronger faith I seek, 

Hill of Calvary, I go 

To thy scenes of fear and woe ; 

4 There behold his agony, 
Suffered on the bitter tree ; 
See his anguish, see his faith, 
Love triumphant still in death. 

5 Then to life I turn again ; 
Learning all the worth of pain, 
Learning all the might that lies 
In a full self-sacrifice.

Ot) 1 . Excellency of Christ. Medley. 

1 Oh could we speak the matchless worth, 
Oh could we sound the glories forth, 

Which in our Saviour shine ! — 
We'd soar and touch the heavenly strings, 
And vie with Gabriel, while he sings, 

In notes almost divine. 

2 We 1 d sing the characters he bears, 
And all the forms of love he wears, 

Exalted on his throne : 
In loftiest songs of sweetest praise, 
We would, to everlasting days, 

Make all his glories known. 

3 Oli the delightful day will come, 
When Christ, our Lord, will bring us 

home, 

And we shall see his face ! 
Then, with our Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
A blest eternity we'll spend, 

Triumphant in his grace.

When Jesus all-triumphant came 

To bless the sons of earth ! 

2 He came to bid the weary rest, 

To heal the sinner's wounded breast, 

To bind the broken heart ; 
To spread the light of truth around, 
And to the world's remotest bound 
The heavenly gift impart. 

3 He came our trembling souls to save 
From sin, from sorrow, and the grave 

And chase our fears away ; 
Victorious over death and time, 
To lead us to a happier clime, 

Where reigns eternal day. 

4 Then let our mingling voices rise 
In grateful rapture to the skies. 

And hail a Saviour's birth ; 
Let songs of joy the day proclaim, 
When Jesus all-triumphant came, 

To bless the sons of earth.

OvO. Looking unto Jesus Mrs. Miles. 

1 Tnou who didst stoop below, 
To drain the cup of woe, 

And wear the form of frail mortality, — 
Thy blessed labors done, 
Thy crown of victory won, — 

Hast passed from earth, — passed to thy 

home on high. 

* 

2 It was no path of flowers, 
Through this dark world of ours, 

Beloved of the Father, thou didst tread ; 
And shall we, in dismay, 
Shrink from the narrow way, 

When clouds and darkne3s are around it 
spread ? 

3 Thou who art our life ! 

Be with us through the strife : 
Thy own meek head by rudest storms was 
bowed. 
Raise thou our eyes above, 
To see a Father's love 
Beam, like a bow of promise, through the 
cloud. 



OJi. Bearing the Cross. Bulfisch. 

1 Burden of shame and woe, 
How does the heart o'erflow 

At thought of Him the bitter cross who 
bore ! 
But we have each our own, 
To others oft unknown, 
Which we must bear till life shall be no 
more. 

2 And shall we fear to tread 
The path where Jesus led, 

The pure and holy One for man who died ? 
Or shall we shrink from shame, 
Endured for Jesus' name, 

Our glorious Lord, once spurned and cru- 
cified ? 

3 Then, 'mid the woes that wait 
On this our mortal state, 

Patience shall cheer affliction, toil, and loss ; 
And, though the tempter's art 
Assail the struggling heart 

Still, Saviour, in thy name we bear the 
cross.

Anon. 



1 Come unto me, when shadows darkly gather, 

When the sad heart is weary and distrest, 
Seeking for comfort from your heavenly Father : 
Come unto me, and I will give you rest. 

2 Ye who have mourned when the spring-flowers were taken, 

When the ripe fruit fell richly to the ground ; 
When the loved slept, in brighter homes to waken, 

Where their pale brows with spirit- wreaths are crowned, - 

3 Large are the mansions in thy Father's dwelling, 

Glad are the homes that sorrows never dim ; 
Sweet are the harps in holy music swelling, 

Soft are the tones which raise the heavenly hymn. 

4 There, like an Eden blossoming in gladness, 

Bloom the fair flowers the earth too rudely pressed : 
Come unto me, all ye who droop in sadness, — 
Come unto me, and I will give you rest.

1 Tiiere's not a hope with comfort fraught, 
Triumphant over death and time, 
But Jesus mingles in the thought, 
Forerunner of our course sublime.

Of joy, and brightens every smile ; 
I see him, when the tempests lower, 
Each terror soothe, each grief beguile.

ASHWELL. L.M. 




3 I see him in the daily round 
Of social duty, mild and meek ; 
With him I tread the hallowed ground, 
Communion with my God to seek. 

4 I see his pitying, gentle eye, 
When lonely want appeals for aid ; 
I hear him in the frequent sigh, 

That mourns the waste which sin has 
made. 

5 I meet him at the lowly tomb ; 

I weep where Jesus wept before ; 

And there, above the grave's dark gloom, 

I see him rise, and weep no more. 

• It//. Christ the Sufferer. Bulfixch. 

1 O suffering Friend of human kind ! 
How, as the fatal hour drew near, 
Came thronging on thy holy mind 
The images of grief and fear ! 

2 Gethsemane's sad midnight scene, 
The faithless friends, the exulting foes, 
The thorny crown, the insult keen, 
The scourge, the cross, before thee rose. 



3 Did not thy spirit shrink dismayed, 
As the dark vision o'er it came ; 

And, though in sinless strength arrayed, 
Turn, shuddering, from the death of 
shame ? 

4 Onward, like thee, thro 1 scorn and dread, 
May we our Father's call obey, 
Steadfast thy path of duty tread, 

And rise, through death, to endless day !

3 " 'Tis finished : " Son of God, thy power 
Hath triumphed in this awful hour ; 
And yet our eyes with sorrow see 

That life to us was death to thee.

Christ's Entrance into Jerusalem. MlLMAN. 



1 Ride on, ride on in majesty : 

Hark ! all the tribes " Hosanna " cry : 
Thine humble beast pursues his road, 
With palms and scattered garments 
strewed. 

2 Ride on, ride on in majesty ; 
In lowly pomp ride on to die : 

O Christ ! thy triumphs now begin, 
O'er captive death and conquered sin. 

3 Ride on, ride on in majesty : 
The winged squadrons of the sky 
Look down with sad and wondering eyes 
To see the approaching sacrifice. 

4 Ride on, ride on in majesty ; 

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh : 
The Father, on his glorious throne, 
Expects his own anointed Son. 

6 Ride on, ride on in majesty : 
In lowly pomp ride on to die ; 
Row thy meek head to mortal pain, 
Then take, O Christ! thy power, and 
reign.

Behold the Man ! Chr. Psalmist. 



1 Behold the man, — how glorious he 
Before his foes he stands unawed ; 
And, without wrong or blasphemy, 
He claims to be the Son of God. 

2 Behold the man ! — by all condemned, 
Assaulted by a host of foes ; 

His person and his claims contemned, - 
A man of sufferings and of woes. 

3 Behold the man ! so weak he seems, 
His awful word inspires no fear ; 

But soon must he who now blasphemes, 
Before his judgment-seat appear. 

4 Behold the man ! though scorned below, 
lie bears the greatest name above ; 
The angels at his footstool bow, 

And all his royal claims approve

2 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down ! 
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown ? 

3 Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were an offering far too small : 
Love so amazing, so divine, 
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Christ's Passion. Montgomery. 



1 The morning dawns upon the place 
"Where Jesus spent the night in prayer : 
Through yielding glooms behold his face 
Nor form nor comeliness is there. 

2 Last eve, by those he called his own, 
Betrayed, forsaken, or denied, 

He met his enemies alone, 

In all their malice, rage, and pride. 

3 No guile within his mouth is found ; 
He neither threatens nor complains : 
Meek as a lamb for slaughter bound, 
Dumb midst his murderers he remains.

Though in a servant's mean disguise, 
And bruised beneath the Father's rod ;

1 Ye faithful souls, who Jesus know, 
If risen indeed with him ye are, 
Superior to the joys below, 

His resurrection's power declare. 

2 Your faith by holy tempers prove ; 
By actions show your sins forgiven ; 
And seek the glorious things above, 
And follow Christ, your Head, to heaven 

3 To him continually aspire, 
Contending for your native place ; 
And emulate the angel-choir, 
And only live to love and praise 

4 Your real life, with Christ concealed, 
Deep in the Father's bosom lies ; 
And glorious as your Head revealed, 
Ye soon shall meet him in the skies.

Resurrection of Christ. 



COLLYER. 



1 Morning breaks upon the tomb, 
Jesus dissipates its gloom ; 

Day of triumph through the skies, 
See the glorious Saviour rise ! 

2 Christians, dry your flowing tears ; 
Chase those unbelieving fears ; 
Look on his deserted grave ; 
Doubt no more his power to save. 

3 Ye who are of death afraid, 
Triumph in the scattered shade ; 
Drive your anxious fears away : 
See the place where Jesus lay ! 

4 So the rising sun appears, 
Shedding radiance o'er the spheres ; 
So returning beams of light 
Chase the terrors of the night. 

40c). The Risen Christ. CUDWOitTH. 

1 Christ the Lord is risen to-day, 
Sons of men and angels say : 
Raise your joys and triumphs high ; 
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply. 



2 Love's redeeming work is done, 
Fought the fight, the victory won : 
Jesus 1 agony is o'er, 

Darkness veils the earth no more. 

3 Soar we now where Christ hath led, 
Following our exalted Head ; 
Made like him, like him we rise, — 
Ours the cross, the crave, the skies.

Death Conquered. 



Scott. 



1 Angel, roll the rock away ; 
Death, yield up thy mighty prey : 
See ! he rises from the tomb, 
Glowing in immortal bloom. 

2 Powers of heaven, seraphic fires, 
Sing, and sweep your sounding lyres ; 
Sons of men, in humble strain, 

Sing your mighty Saviour's reign. 

3 Every note with wonder swell, 
And the Saviour's triumph tell : 
Where, O death ! is now thy sting? 
Where thy terrors, vanquished king?

In the true believer's breast ;

Nought so sweet is heard or sung ; 
Nought the mind can dwell upon 
Sweet as God's beloved Son.

Who thy goodness can display ? 
How, to those who seek thee, kind !

Communion Hymn. 



S. D. Bobbins. 



1 Saviour, when thy bread we break, 
When thy " cup of blessing" take, 
Fill our souls with life like thine, — 
Thou our bread, and thou our wine. 



2 For us all, thy feast is spread ; 
For us all, thy blood was shed : 
Thou didst die that all might live ; 
For all sin thyself didst give. 

3 Lowly we, around thy board, 
Hold communion with our Lord ; 
In our midst thy form we see, 

And through faith would feed on thee. 

4 Let our guilt be washed away, 
Let our darkness turn to day ; 
May thy smile upon us rest, 
While we lean upon thy breast ! 

5 Should thy cross upon us press, 
We shall feel our sorrows less ; 
Should thy yoke upon us bear, 
Thou wilt every burden share. 

6 And when here on earth no more 
Round thy table we may draw, 
In thy Father's kingdom we, 
Through thy grace, would sup with thee,

4:Uy. Example of Christ. Beddome. 

1 In duties and in sufferings too, 

My Lord I fain would trace : 
As he hath done, so would I do, 
Sustained by heavenly grace. 

2 Inflamed with zeal, 'twas his delight 

To do his Father's will ; 
May the same zeal my soul excite 
His precepts to fulfil ! 

3 Meekness, humility, and love, 

Through all his conduct shine ; 
Oh may my whole deportment prove 
A copy, Lord, of thine ! 

4:10. Following Clirist. Barbauld. 

1 We tread the path our Master trod ; 

We bear the cross he bore ; 
And every thorn that wounds our feet 
His temples pierced before. 

2 Oft do our eyes with joy o'erflow, 

And oft are bathed in tears ; 
Yet nought but heaven our hopes can raise, 
And nought but sin our fears. 



3 We purge our mortal dross away, 
Refining as we run ; 
And while we die to earth and sense, 
Our heaven is here begun.

1 'Tis finished : the Messiah dies 

For sins, but not his own ;

And death is overthrown. 

2 'Tis finished : all his groans are past ; 

His blood, his pain, and toils, 
Have fully vanquished our foes, 
And crowned him with their spoils. 

3 'Tis finished : ritual worship ends, 

And gospel ages run ; 
All old things now are passed away, 
A new world is begun.

2 Thus low the Lord of life was brought, 

Such wonders love can do ; 
Thus cold in death that bosom lay, 
Which throbbed and bled for you. 

3 Then raise your eyes and tune your songs ; 

The Saviour lives again : 
Not all the bolts and bars of death 
The conqueror could detain. 

4 High, o'er the angelic bands, he rears 

His once dishonored head ; 
And through unnumbered years he reigns 
Who dwelt among the dead. 

5 With joy like his shall every saint 

His empty tomb survey ; 
Then rise with his ascending Lord, 
Through all his shining way.

I Do not I love thee, O my Lord ? 
Behold my heart, and see ; 
And turn each worthless idol out, 
That dares to rival thee ! 



2 Is not thy name melodious still 

To my attentive ear ? 
Doth not each pulse with pleasure beat 
My Saviour's voice to hear ? 

3 Hast thou a lamb in all thy flock, 

I would disdain to feed? 
Hast thou a foe, before whose face 
I fear thy cause to plead ? 

4 Thou know'st I love thee, dearest Lord ; 

But oh ! I long to soar 
Far from the sphere of mortal joys, 
And learn to love thee more.

But God be all the world to me, 
And all my heart be love.

1 All bail the power of Jesus' name ! 

Let angels prostrate fall ; 
Bring forth the royal diadem, 
And crown him Lord of all. 

2 Let every kindred, every tribe, 

On this terrestrial ball, 
To him all majesty ascribe, 
And crown him Lord of all. 

3 Oh that, with yonder sacred throng, 

We at his feet may fall, 
And join the everlasting song, 
And crown him Lord of all ! 

41b. Christ our Guide and our Wisdom. Baxter. 

1 Christ leads me through no darker rooms 

Than he went through before : 
He that into God's kingdom comes 
Must enter by this door. 

2 Come, Lord, when grace hath made me 

Thy blessed face to see ; [meet 

For if thy work on earth be sweet, 
What must thy glory be ? 



3 Then I shall end my sad complaints, 

And weary, sinful days ; 
And join with those triumphant saints 
That sing Jehovah's praise. 

4 My knowledge of that life is small, 

The eye of faith is dim ; 
But 'tis enough tha«t Christ knows all, 
And I shall be with him.

Brydobs. 



1 Before the cross of him who died, 

Behold ! I prostrate fall : 
Let every sin be crucified ; 
Let Christ be all in all. 

2 May the dear blood once shed for me, 

My blest atonement prove ; 

That I from first to last may be 

The purchase of thy love. 

3 Let every thought and work and word 

To thee be ever given ; 
Then life shall be thy service, Lord, 
And death the gate of heaven

1 Tuou art the Way : by thee alone 

From sin and death we flee ; 
And they who would the Father seek 
Must seek him, Lord, by thee. 

2 Thou art the Truth : thy word alone 

True wisdom can impart ; 
Thou only canst inform the mind, 
And purify the heart. 

3 Thou art the Life : the rending tomb 

Proclaims thy conquering arm, 
And those who put their trust in thee 
Nor death nor hell shall harm. 

4 Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life 

Grant us that way to know, 
That truth to keep, that life to win, 
Whose joys eternal flow.

1 O Love ! O Life ! our faith and sight 
Thy presence maketh one : 
As, through transfigured clouds of white 
We trace the noon-day sun, — 



2 So, to our mortal eyes subdued, 

Flesh-veiled, but not concealed, 
We know in thee the fatherhood 
And heart of God revealed. 

3 We faintly hear, we dimly see, 

In differing phrase we pray ; 
But, dim or clear, we own in thee 
The Light, the Truth, the Way. 

4 The homage that we render thee 

Is still our Father's own ; 
Nor jealous claim or rivalry 
Divides the Cross and Throne. 

5 To do thy will is more than praise, 

As words are less than deeds ; 

And simple trust can find thy ways 

We miss with chart of creeds. 

6 Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord, 

WTiat may thy service be ? 
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word, 
But simply following thee.

1 Tesus, and can it ever be, — 

A. mortal man ashamed of thee ? 
Scorned be the thought by rich and poor ; 
My soul shall scorn it more and more. 

2 Ashamed of Jesus ! just as soon 
Let midnight be ashamed of noon ; 
'Tis midnight in my soul, till he, 
Bright morning star, bids darkness flee. 

3 Ashamed of Jesus ! that dear friend, 
On whom my hopes of heaven depend? 
No : when I blush, be this my .shame, — 
That I no more revere his name. 

Ashamed of Jesus ! yes, 1 may 
When I've no sins to wash away, 
No tears to wipe, no joys to crave, 
And no immortal soul to save. 

Till then, — nor is the boasting vain, — 
Till then I boast a Saviour slain ; 
And oh may this my portion be. — 
That Saviour's not ashamed of me !

1 Is it not strange, the darkest hour 
That ever dawned on sinful earth 
Should touch the heart with softest power, 
And give our sweetest comforts birth ? — 

2 That to the cross our eyes should turn 
For cheering li<dit and strength to save, 
Sooner than where the Easter sun 
Shines glorious on the open grave ? 

3 Yet so it is : for duly there 

The storms of life are lulled to rest ; 
Stilled by the Saviour's trusting prayer, 
Soothed by the peace within his breast. 

4 My Saviour, whom 'tis life to see, 
Thy promise in thy cross appears : 

Its power, its peace, oh grant to me. —

Be wholly thine ! 

May thy rich grace impart

While life's dark maze I tread, 
And griefs around me spread,

Nor let me ever stray 

From thee aside.

When death's cold, sullen stream

We tread earth's rugged pathway o'er, 
The thought how comforting and sweet ! ■ 
Christ trod this very path before. 

Our wants, our weaknesses, he knows, 
From life's first dawning to its close. 

2 So tried as I this earth he trod, 
Knew even' human ill but sin ; 
And, though the holiest Son of God, 
As I am now, so hath he been. 
Jesus, my Saviour, look on me : 
For help and strength I turn to thee.

1 We were not with the faithful few 
Who stood thy bitter cross around, 
Nor heard thy prayer for those that slew, 
Nor felt that earthquake rock the ground ; 
We saw no spear-wound pierce thy side : 
Yet we believe that thou hast died. 

2 No angel's message met our ear 
On that first glorious Easter day, — 



" The Lord is risen ; he is not here : 
Come, see the place where Jesus lay ! " 
But we believe that thou didst quell 
The banded powers of death and hell. 

3 We saw thee not return on high ; 
And now, our longing sight to bless, 
Xo ray of glory from the sky 
Shines down upon our wilderness : 
Yet we believe that thou art there, 
And seek thee, Lord, in praise and prayer. 

TC^t/. I loill came again . Eliu, 

1 Fling wide the portals of your heart ; 
Make it a temple set apart 

From earthly use, for heaven's employ, 
Adorned with prayer and love and joy : 
So shall your Saviour enter in, 
And new and nobler life begin. 

2 Redeemer, come ; we open wide 

Our hearts to thee : here, Lord, abide. 
Let us thy inner presence feel, 
Thy grace and love in us reveal ; 
Thy Holy Spirit guide us on, 
Until the glorious crown be won.

1 When, marshalled on the nightly plain, 
The glittering host bestud the sky, 
One star alone, of all the train, 

Can fix the sinner's wandering eye. 

2 Hark ! hark ! to God the chorus breaks, 
From e\ery host, from every gem ; 
But one alone the Saviour speaks, — 

It is the Star of Bethlehem. 

3 It is my guide, my light, my all ; 

It bade my dark forebodings cease ; 
And, thro' the storm and danger's thrall, 
It led me to the port of peace. 

4 Now, safely moored, my perils o'er, 
I'll sing — first in night's diadem, 
For ever, and for evermore — 
The Star,— the Star of Bethlehem. 

< ±«l)JL. Jesus the Light of the Soul. 

I Light of the soul, O Saviour blest ! 
Soon as thy presence fills the breast, 
Darkness and guilt are put to flight, 
And all is sweetness and delight. 



2 Son of the Father, Lord most high, 
How glad is he who feels thee nigh ! 
How sweet in heaven thy beam doth glow. 
Denied to eye of flesh below ! 

3 O heavenly and benignant Light ! 
Come to us in thy saving might, 
Come in thy hidden majesty ; 
Fill us with love, fill us with thee.

Vie Mercy-seat. 



Stoweza. 



1 From every stormy wind that blows, 
From every swelling tide of woes, 
There is a calm, a sure retreat : 
'Tis found beneath the mercy-seat. 

2 There is a place where Jesus sheds 
The oil of gladness on our heads, — 
A place, than all besides, more sweet: 
It is the heavenly mercy-seat. 

3 There is a scene where spirits blend, 
Where friend holds fellowship with friend ; 
Though sundered far, by faith they meet 
Around one common mercy-seat.

Jesus our Joy. St. Bernard. 



1 Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts, 
Thou Fount of Life, thou Light of men. 
From the best bliss that earth imparts, 
We turn unfilled to thee again. 

2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood ; 
Thou savest those that on thee call ; 
To them that seek thee, thou art good ; 
To them that find thee, — Ail in All. 

3 Our restless spirits yearn for thee, 
Where'er our changeful lot is cast : 
Glad when thy gracious smile we see ; 
Blest when our faith can hold thee fast. 

4 O Jesus ! ever with us stay ; 

Make all our moments calm and bright ; 
Chase the dark night of sin away, 
Shed o'er the world thy holy light.

Our Merciful Judge, c. F. Alexander. 



1 O Son of God, in glory crowned, 

The Judge ordained of quick and dead ! 
O Son of man, so pitying found 
For all the tears thy people shed ! — 

2 Be with us in this darkened place, 
This weary, restless, dangerous night ; 
And teach, oh teach us by thy grace 
To struggle onward into light ! 

3 And since, in God's recording book, 
Our sins are written every one, — 

The crime, the wrath, the wandering look, 
The good we knew, and left undone, — 

4 Lord, ere the last dread trumpet sound, 
And ere before thy face we stand, 
Look thou on each accusing word, 
And blot it with thy bleeding hand. 

5 And by the love that brought thee here, 
And by the cross and by the grave, 
Give perfect love for conscious fear, 
And in the day of judgment save.

1 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

" Come unto me, and rest : 
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down 
Thy head upon my breast." 

2 I came to Jesus as I was, 

Weary and worn and sad ; 

I found in him a resting-place, 

And he has made me glad. 

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

" Behold ! I freely give 
The living water : thirsty one, 

Stoop down, and drink and live ! " 

i I came to Jesus, and I drank 
Of that life-giving stream : 
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, 
And now I live in him.

Christ our Example. 



Anon. 



1 Lord, as to thy dear cross we flee, 
And pray to be forgiven, 
So let thy life our pattern be, 
And form our souls for heaven. 



2 Help us, through good report and ill. 

Our daily cross to bear ; 
Like thee, to do our Father's will, 
Our brother's griefs to share. 

3 Let grace our selfishness expel, 

Our earthliness refine ; 
And kindness in our bosoms dwell, 
As free and true as thine. 



4 If joy shall at thy bidding fly, 

And grief's dark day come on, 
We in our turn would meekly cry, 
" Father, thy will be done." 

5 Should friends misjudge, or foes defame, 

Or brethren faithless prove, — 
Then, like thine own, be all our aim 
To conquer them by love. 

6 Kept peaceful in the midst of strife. 

Forgiving and forgiven, 
Oh may we lead the pilgrim's life, 
And follow thee to heaven !

Thou Conqueror renowned, 
Thou sweetness most ineffable, 
In whom all joys are found ! — 

2 When once thou visitest the heart, 

Then truth begins to shine, 
Then earthly vanities depart, 
Then kindles love divine. 

3 Jesus, Light of all below, 

Thou Fount of life and fire, 
Surpassing all the joys we know, 
All that we can desire ! — 

4 May every heart confess thy name, 

And ever thee adore ; 
And, seeking thee, itself inflame 
To seek thee more and more ! 

5 Thee may our tongues for ever bless 

Thee may we love alone ; 

And ever in our life express 

The linage of thine own !

AJT02T. 



1 There is an eye that never sleeps 

Beneath the wing of night ; 
There is an ear that never shuts, 
"When sink the beams of light. 

2 There is an arm that never tires, 

When human strength gives way ; 
There is a love that never fails, 
When earthly loves decay. 

3 That eye is fixed on seraph throngs ; 

That arm upholds the sky ; 
That ear is filled with angel songs ; 
That love is throned on high. 

■1 But there's a power which man can wield, 
When mortal aid is vain ; 
That eye, that arm, that love to reach, 
That listening ear to gain. 

5 That power is prayer, which soars on high, 
Through Jesus, to the throne ; 
And moves the hand which moves the 
To bring salvation down. [world,

Salvation through Christ. TOPLADY. 



1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
Let me hide myself in thee ; 
Let the water and the blood, 
From thy riven side which flowed, 
Be of sin the double cure, — 
Cleanse me from its guilt and power. 

2 Not the labors of my hands 
Can fulfil thy law's demands : 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears for ever flow, 
All for sin could not atone : 
Thou must save, and thou alone. 

3 Nothing in my hand I bring, 
Simply to thy cross I cling ; 
Naked, come to thee for dress ; 
Helpless, look to thee for grace ; 
Foul, I to thy fountain fly : 
Wash me, Saviour, or I die. 

4 Whilst I draw this fleeting breath, 
When my eye-strings break in death, 
When I soar through tracts unknown, 
Sec thee on thy judgment-throne, — 



Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
Let me hide myself in thee.

Sun of Righteousness. C. Wesley. 



1 Christ, whose glory fills the skies ; 
Christ, the true, the only light, — 
Sun of Righteousness, arise, 
Triumph o'er the shades of night. 
Dayspring from on high, be near; 
Day-star, in my heart appear. 

2 Dark and cheerless is the morn, 
If thy light is hid from me ; 
Joyless is the day's return, 
Till thy mercy's beams I see, 
Till thy inward light impart 
Warmth and gladness to my heart 

3 Visit, then, this soul of mine ; 
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief; 
Fill me, radiant Sun divine ; 
Scatter all my unbelief; 

More and more thyself display, 
Shining to the perfect day.

4.4-1 C7«rrf our Example in Suffering. 

1 Go to dark Gethsemane, 

Ye that feel temptation's power : 
Your Redeemer's conflict see, 
Watch with him one bitter hour : 
Turn not from his griefs away ; 
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. 

2 Follow to the judgment-hall ; 
View the Lord of life arraigned : 
Oh the wormwood and the gall ! 
Oh the griefs his soul sustained ! 
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss : 
Learn of him to bear the cross. 

3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb : 
There, admiring at his feet, 

Mark that miracle of time, 
Love's own sacrifice complete : 
" It is finished," hear him cry ; 
Learn of Jesus Christ to die. 

4 Early hasten to the tomb 

Where they laid his breathless clay : 
All is solitude and gloom ; 
Who has taken him away ? 



Christ is risen ; he meets our eyes : 
Saviour, teach us so to rise.

It is finished." 



BUXFINCH 



1 It is finished, — glorious word 
From thy lips, our suffering Lord ; 
Word of high, triumphant might, 
Ere thy spirit takes its flight. 

It is finished : all is o'er ; 

Pain and scorn oppress no more. 

2 Now no more foreboding dread 
Shades the path thy feet must tread ; 
No more fear lest, in thine hour, 
Pain should patience overpower : 
On the perfect sacrifice 

Not a stain of weakness lies. 

3 Champion, lay thine armor by; 
'Tis thine hour of victory : 

All thy toils are now o'erpast ; 
Thou hast found thy rest at last ; 
All hath faithfully been done, 
And the world's salvation won.

Strength from the Cross. F. II. Hedge. 



1 " It is finished." Man of sorrows, 
From thy cross our frailty borrows 

Strength to bear and conquer thus. 
While extended there we view thee, 
Mighty sufferer, draw us to thee, — 

Sufferer victorious. y 

2 Not in vain for us uplifted, 
Man of sorrows, wonder-gifted, 

May that sacred emblem be ! 
Lifted high amid the ages, 
Guide of heroes, saints, and sages, 

May it guide us still to thee ! 
8 Still to thee, whose love unbounded 
Sorrow's depths for us has sounded, 

Perfected by conflicts sore. 
Honored be thy cross for ever ; 
Star, that points our high endeavor 

Whither thou hast gone before. 

X-LJ:. " Veni, Sancle Spiritut." Tr. by F. n. Hedok. 

1 Holy Spirit, Fire divine, 

Send from heaven a ray of thine ; 

Lighten our obscurity. 
Come, thou Father of the poor ; 
Come, thou Giver and Rencwer, — 

Fountain of all purity. 



2 Visit us, Consoler best, — 
Thou the bosom's sweetest guest, 

Sweetest comfort proffering : 
Thou dost give the weary rest, 
Shade to all with heat opprest, 

Solace in all suffering. 

3 O blest Light ineffable ! 
With thy faithful amply dwell : 

Lord of our humanity, 
Nothing lives without thy ray ; 
Reft of thy enlivening day, 

All is void and vanity. 

4 What is foul, oh ! purify ; 
Water what in us is dry ; 

All our hurts alleviate ; 
Bend our temper's rigidncss ; 
Warm our nature's frigidness ; 

Bring back all who deviate. 

5 Give them who in thee abide, — 
All that do in thee confide, — 

Give them grace increasingly : 
Give to virtue its reward, 
Saving end to all accord, 

Joy in heaven unceasingly.

The City of God. 



J. Newtoh. 



1 Glorious things of thee are spoken, 

Zion, city of our God : 
He, whose word cannot be broken, 
Formed thee for his own abode. 

2 On the Rock of Ages founded, 

What can shake thy sure repose ? 
With salvation's walls surrounded, 
Thou mayst smile at all thy foes. 

8 See ! the streams of living waters, 
Springing from eternal love, 
Well supply thy sons and daughters, 
And all fear of want remove. 

4 Who can faint while such a river 

Ever flows their thirst to assuage ? - 
Grace, which, like the Lord the Giver, 
Never fails from asre to asre. 



/{ /} fK Future Peace and Glory of the Church. 

J -- , - V - , • COMTEK. 

1 Hear what God the Lord hath spoken : 

" Oh my people, faint and few, 
Comfortless, afflicted, broken, — 
Fair abodes I build for you. 

2 "There, like streams that feed the garden, 

Pleasures without end shall flow ; 
For the Lord, your faith rewarding, 
All his bounty shall bestow. 

3 " Still in undisturbed possession 

Peace and righteousness shall reign ; 
Never shall you feel oppression, — 
Hear the voice of war again. 

4 " Ye, no more your suns descending, 

Waning moons no more shall see ; 
But, your griefs for ever ending, 
Find eternal noon in me.

1 Our blest Redeemer, ere he breathed 

His tender, last farewell, 
A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed 
With us to dwell. 

2 He came sweet influence to impart, — 

A gracious, willing guest, 
While he can find one humble heart 
Wherein to rest. 

5 And his that gentle voice we hear, 

Soft as the breath of even, [fear, 

That checks each fault, that calms each 
And speaks of heaven. 

4 And every virtue we possess, 
And every victory won, 
And every thought of holiness, 
Are his alone. 

6 Spirit of purity and grace, 

Our weakness pitying see ; 
Oh make our hearts thy dwelling-place, 
And worthier thee !

Keblb. 



1 Lo ! when the Spirit of our God 

Came down his flock to find, 
A voice from heaven was heard abroad, - 
A rushing, mighty wind. 

2 It fills the Church of God ; it fills 

The sinful world around : 
Only in stubborn hearts and wills 
No place for it is found. 

3 To other strains our souls are set : 

A giddy whirl of sin 
Fills ear and heart, and will not let 
Heaven's harmonies come in. 

4 Come, Lord ; come, Wisdom, Love, and 

Open our ears to hear ; [Power, — 
Let us not miss the accepted hour : 
Save, Lord, by love or fear.

But one communion make : 
All join in Christ, their living Head,

Ere nature was begun !

2 We hail the Church, built high o'er all 

The heathen's rage and scoff, — 
Thy Providence its fenced wall, 
" The Lamb the light thereof." 



3 Thy Christ hath reached his heavenly seat, 

Through sorrows and through scars : 
The golden lamps are at his feet, 
And in his hand the stars. 

4 Oh may he walk among us here, 

With his rebuke and love ; 
A brightness o'er this lower sphere, — 
A ray from worlds above !

For the Success of the Gospel. W.Ward. 



1 Great God, thy tender love has sent 

Thy gospel to mankind, 
Unveiling what rich stores of grace 
Are treasured in thy mind. 

2 Oh when shall these glad tidings spread 

The spacious earth around, 
Till every tribe and every soul 
Shall hear the joyful sound ? 

3 Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt 

To spread the gospel's rays ; 
And build, on sin's demolished throne, 
The temples of thy praise.

And make the broad earth thine ; 

Stretch o'er her lands and isles the rod 
That flowers with grace divine.

And in its shade like brothers rest, 
Sons of one family !

With words of grace and power ; 
Gather us all within thy fold, 
And let us stray no more.

1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun 
Does his successive journeys run ; 

His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, 
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 

2 For him shall endless prayer be made, 
And praises throng to crown his head ; 
His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise 
With every morning sacrifice. 

8 People and realms of every tongue 
Dwell on his love with sweetest song, 
And infant voices shall proclaim 
Their early blessings on his name. 

4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns ; 
The prisoner leaps to loose his chains, 
The weary find eternal rest, 

And all the sons of want are blest.

And earth repeat the long amen.

Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

To preach the reconciling word ; 

Give power and unction from above, 
Where'er the joyful sound is heard.

Confusion, — order, in thy path ;

Till every people call him Lord.

But, Father, yet we praise thy name, 
Whose guardian love is always near. 

2 For man has striven, ages long, 
With faltering steps, to come to thee ; 
And, in each purpose high and strong, 
The influence of thy grace could see. 



3 He could not breathe an earnest prayer, 
But thou wast kinder than he dreamed, 
As age by age brought hopes more fair, 
And nearer still thy kingdom seemed. 

4 But never rose within his breast 
A trust so calm and deep as now : 
Shall not the weary find a rest ? 
Father, Preserver, answer thou ! 



Future Glory of the Church. Ps. 67. 

Spirit of the Psalms.

1 On thy Church, O Power Divine ! 
Cause thy glorious face to shine, 
Till the nations from afar 

Hail her as their guiding star ; 
Till her sons from zone to zone 
Make thy great salvation known. 

2 Then shall God, with lavish hand, 
Scatter blessings o'er the land ; 
Earth shall yield her rich increase, 
Every breeze shall whisper peace, 
And the world's remotest bound 
With the voice of praise resound.

Missionary Hymn. 



Hebeb 



1 From Greenland's icy mountains, 

From India's coral strand, 
Where Afrie's sunny fountains 

Roll down their golden sand, 
From many an ancient river, 

From many a palmy plain, 
They call us to deliver 

Their land from error's chain. 

2 What though the spicy breezes 

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle, — 
Though every prospect pleases, 

And only man is vile ? 
In vain with lavish kindness 

The gifts of God are strown : 
The heathen in his blindness 

Bows down to wood and stone. 

3 Shall we, whose souls are lighted 

By wisdom from on high, — 
Shall we to men benighted 

The lamp of life deny ? 
Salvation, () salvation ! 

The joyful sound proclaim, 



Till earth's remotest nation 
Has learnt Messiah's name. 

4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story, 

And you, ye waters, roll. 
Till, like a sea of glory, 

It spreads from pole to pole , 
Till o'er our ransomed nature 

The Lamb for sinners slain, 
Redeemer, King, and Saviour, 

In bliss returns to reign. 

J^zL Blessings of Christ's Kingdom.

1 Hail to the Lord's Anointed, — 

Great David's greater Son ! 
Hail ! in the time appointed 

His reign on earth begun : 
He comes to break oppression, 

To set the captive free, 
To take away transgression, 

And rule in equity. 

2 He comes, with succor speedy, 
To those who suffer wrong ; 
To help the poor and needy, 
And bid the weak be strong ;

To give them songs for sighing, 
Their darkness turn to light, 

Whose souls, condemned and dying, 
Were precious in his sight. 

3 He shall come down, as showers 

Upon the thirsty earth ; 
And joy and hope, like flowers, 

Spring in his path to birth. 
Before him on the mountains 

Shall peace, the herald, go ; 
And righteousness, in fountains, 

From hill to valley flow. 

4 Through him shall prayer unceasing, 

And daily vows, ascend ; 
His kingdom still increasing, 

A kingdom without end. 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove ; 
His name shall stand for ever ; 

His name to us is Love.

1 When shall the voice of singing 
Flow joyfully along ? 



When hill and valley, ringing 
With one triumphant song, 

Proclaim the contest ended ; 
And Him who once was slain, 

Again to earth descended, 
In righteousness to reijm ? 

Then, from the craggy mountains, 

The sacred shout shall fly ; 
And shady vales and fountains 

Shall echo the reply. 
High tower and lowly dwelling 

Shall send the hymn around ; 
All hallelujah swelling, 

In one eternal sound. 

Doxology. 

To thee be praise for ever, 

Thou glorious King of kings : 
Thy wondrous love and favor 

Each ransomed spirit sings. 
We'll celebrate thy glory, 

With all thy saints above, 
And shout the joyful story 

Of thv redeeming love.

1 Gone is the hollow, murky night, 

With all its shadows dun ; 
Oh shine upon us, heavenly Light, 
As on the earth the sun ! 

2 Pour on our hearts thy heavenly beam, 

In radiance sublime ; 
Retire before that ray supreme, 
Ye sins of elder time. 

S Lo ! on the morn that now is here 
No night shall ever fall ; 
But faith shall burn, undimmed and clear, 
Till God be all in all. 

4 This is the dawn of infant faith: 

The day will follow soon, 
When hope shall breathe with freer breath, 
And morn be lost in noon. 

5 For to the seed that's sown to-day 

A harvest-time is given, 
When charity, with faith to stay, 
Shall make on earth a heaven.

1 Supreme Disposer of the heart, 

Thou, since the world was made, 
Hast the blest fruits of holiness 
To holy hearts displayed. 

2 Here, hope and faith their links unite 

With love in one sweet chain ; 
But, when all fleeting things are past, 
Love shall alone remain. 

3 O love ! O true and fadeless light ! 

And shall it ever be, 
That, after all our toils and tears, 
Thy sabbath we shall see ? 

4 'Mid thousand fears and dangers now, 

We sow our seed with prayer ; 
But know that joyful hands shall reap 
The shining harvests there. 

5 O God of justice, God of power ! 

Our faith and hope increase ; 
And crown them, in the future years, 
With endless love and peace.

Permanence of the Church. 



1 Oh where are kings and empires now, 

Of old that went and came ? 

But Holy Church is praying yet, 

A thousand years the same. 

2 Mark ye her holy battlements, 

And her foundations strong ; 
And hear within her solemn voice, 
And her unending song. 

3 For not like kingdoms of the world 

The Holy Church of God : [her, 

Though earthquake shocks are rocking 
And tempests are abroad, — 

4 Unshaken as eternal hills, 

Immovable she stands, — 
A mountain that shall fill the earth, 
A fane unbuilt by hands.

1 There is a River, deep and broad ; 
Its course no mortal knows : 
It fills with joy the Church of God, 
And widens as it flows 



2 Clearer than crystal is the stream, 

And bright with endless day ; 
The waves with every blessing teem 
And life and health convey. 

3 Where'er they flow, contentions cease. 

And love and meekness reign : 
The Lord himself commands the peace, 
And foes conspire in vain. 

4 Along the shores, angelic bands 

Watch every moving wave : 
With holy joy their breast expands, 
"When men the waters crave. 

5 To them distressed souls repair ; 

The Lord invites them nigh : 
They leave their cares and sorrows there ; 
They drink, and never die. 

6 Flow on, sweet stream, more largely flow, 

The earth with glory fill ; 
Flow on, till all the Saviour know, 
And all obey his will.

Be joyful in your King. 

2 See the fair way his hand hath raised, - 

How holy and how plain ! 
Nor shall the simplest travellers err, 
Nor ask the track in vain. 

3 No ravening lion shall destroy, 

Nor lurking serpent wound ; 
Pleasure and safety, peace and praise, 
Through all the path are found. 

4 A hand divine shall lead you on 

Through all the blissful road, 
Till to the sacred mount you rise, 
And see your Father, God. 

5 There, garlands of immortal joy 

Shall bloom on every head ; 
While sorrow, sighing, and distress, 
Like shadows all are fled.

And let the prospect cheer your eye, 
While laboring up the hill.

Which clouds the human soul ; 
And let the bright, the perfect day 
Speed onward to its goal. 

2 Let every hateful passion die, 

Which makes of brethren foes ; 
And war no longer raise its cry, 
To mar the world's repose. 

3 Let faith and hope and charity 

Go forth through all the earth ; 
And man, in heavenly bearing, be 
True to his heavenly birth 

4 Yea, let thy glorious kingdom come. 

Of holiness and love ; 
And make this world a portal meet 
For thy bright courts above.

1 The saints on earth, and those above, 
But one communion make : 
Joined to their Lord in bonds of love, 
All of his grace partake. 

9 One family, we dwell in him ; 
One Church above, beneath ; 
Though now divided by the stream, — 
The narrow stream of death. 

3 One army of the living God, 

To his command we bow : 
Part of the host have crossed the flood, 
And part are crossing now. 

4 O God ! be thou our constant guide : 

Then, when the word is given, 
Bid death's cold flood its waves divide, 
And land us safe in heaven.

Around the eternal throne,

To-day the young, the old, 
Our Saviour and his flock appear, — 
One Shepherd and one fold. 

3 Toil, trial, suffering, still await 

On earth the pilgrim's throng ; 
Yet learn we, in our low estate, 
The Church triumphant's song. 

4 Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain 

Cry the redeemed above, 
Blessing and honor to obtain, 
And everlasting love. 

5 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing, 

Who died our souls to save : 
Henceforth, O Death ! where is thy sting ? 
Thy victory, O Grave ?

1 This child we dedicate to thee, 
O God of grace and purity ! 

Shield it from sin and threatening wrong, 
And let thy love its life prolong. 

2 Oh may thy Spirit gently draw 
Its willing soul to keep thy law ! 
May virtue, piety, and truth 
Dawn even with its dawning youth 

3 We, too, before thy gracious sight, 
Once shared the blest baptismal rite ; 
And would renew its solemn vow, 
With love and thanks and praises now.

We still may act the Christian's part ; 
Cheered by each promise thou hast given, 
And laboring for the prize in heaven.

1 Dear Saviour, if these lambs should stray 
From thy secure inclosure's bound, 
And, lured by worldly joys away, 
Among the thoughtless crowd be found, — 

2 Remember still that they are thine, 
That thy dear sacred name they bear ; 
Think that the seal of love divine, 
The sign of covenant grace, they wear 

3 In all their erring, sinful years, 
Oh let them ne'er forgotten be ! 
Remember all the prayers and tears 
Which made them consecrate to thee 

4 And when these lips no more can pray, 
These eyes can weep for them no more, 
Turn thou their feet from folly's way , 
The wanderers to thy fold restore.

1 O holy Lord ! content to live 
In a poor home, a lowly child, 
And in subjection meek to give 
Obedience to thy mother mild, — 

2 Lead every child that bears thy name 
To walk in thy pure, upright way, 
To dread the touch of sin and shame, 
And humbly, like thyself, obey. 

3 Oh let not this world's scorching glow 
Thy Spirit's quickening dew efface ! 
Nor blast of sin too rudely blow, 

And quench the trembling flame of grace. 

4 Gather thy lambs within thine arm, 
And gently in thy bosom bear ; 

Keep them, O Lord ! from hurt and harm, 
And bid them rest for ever there.

1 Father, and is thy table spread? 
And does thy cup with love o'erflow ? 
Thither be these thy children led, 
And let them all its sweetness know. 



2 Oh let thy table honored be, 

And furnished well with joyful guests ; 
And may each soul salvation see, 
That here its sacred pledges tastes. 

3 Let all approach, with hearts prepared ; 
With warm desire let all attend ; 

Nor, when we leave our Father's board, 
The pleasure or the profit end. 

4 Revive thy dying churches, Lord, 
And bid our drooping graces live ; 
And more that energy afford 

A Saviour's death alone can give.

1 The Lord of life this table spread 
With tokens of his dying love ; 
And we, who on its richness feed, 
A foretaste gain of joys above. 

2 Be sinful pleasures all forgot, 
And earth grow less in our esteem ; 
Christ and his love fill every thought, 
And faith and hope be fixed on him.

With all-engaging charms ! 
Hark how he calls the tender lambs, 
And folds them in his arms !

Nor scorn their humble name ; 
For 'twas to bless such souls as these;

This do in remembrance of JWe." 

MONTGOMERY. 



1 According to thy gracious word, 

In meek humility, 
This will I do, my dying Lord, — 
I will remember thee. 

2 Thy body, broken for my sake, 

My bread from heaven shall be ; 
Thy testamental cup I take, 
And thus remember thee. 

3 Gethsemane can I forget, 

Or there thy conflict see, 
Thine agony and bloody sweat, 
And not remember thee ? 

4 When to the cross I turn mine eyes, 

And rest on Calvary ; 
O Lamb of God, ftvy sacrifice ! 
I must remember thee : — 

5 Remember thee, and all thy pains, 

And all thy love to me ! 
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, 
Will I remember thee. 



6 And when these failing lips grow dumb, 
And mind and memory flee ; 
When thou shalt in thy kingdom come, — 
Jesus, remember me. 

^QQ Proper Dispositions for the Communion. 
^<jQ. e. Taylob. 

1 On here, if ever, God of love, 

Let strife and hatred cease ; 
And every thought harmonious move, 
And every heart be peace ! 

2 Not here, where met to think on Him 

Whose latest thoughts were ours, 
Shall mortal passions come to dim 
The prayer devotion pours. 

3 No : gracious Master, not in vain 

Thy life of love hath been ; 

The peace thou gav'st may yet remain, 

Though thou no more art seen. 

[wait, 

4 "Thy kingdom come:" we watch, we 

To hear thy cheering call, 
When heaven shall ope its glorious gate, 
And God be all in all.

Christian Fellowship. S. F. Smith. 



t Planted in Christ, the living Vine, 
This day, with one accord, 
Ourselves, with humble faith and joy, 
We yield to thee, O Lord ! 

2 Joined in one body may we be, 
One inward life partake, 
One be our heart, one heavenly hope 
In every bosom wake. 

& In prayer, in effort, tears, and toils, 
One wisdom be our guide ; 
Taught by one Spirit from above, 
In thee may we abide ! 

<)UU. Close of Communion. S. Gilman. 

1 O God ! accept the sacred hour 

Which we to thee have given ; 
And let this hallowed scene have power 
To raise our souls to heaven. 

2 Still let us hold, till life departs, 

The precepts of thy Son ; 
Nor let our thoughtless, thankless hearts 
Forget what he has done. 



3 His true disciples may we live, 
From all corruption free ; 
And humbly learn, like him, to give 
Our powers, our wills, to thee.

1 Ye followers of the Prince of Peace, 

Who rour.d his table draw, 
Remember what his spirit was, — 
What hif> peculiar law. 

2 The love, which all his bosom filled, 

Did all his actions guide : 
Inspired by love, he lived and taught ; 
Inspired by love, he died. 

3 Let each the sacred law fulfil ; 

Like his be every mind ; 
Be every temper formed by love, 
And every action kind. 

4 Let none who call themselves his friend* 

Disgrace the honored name ; 
But, by a near resemblance, prove 
The title which they claim.

Funeral Hymn. 



Anon. 



1 Clay to clay, and dust to dust ! 
Let them mingle, — for they must ; 
Give to earth the earthly clod, 
For the spirit's fled to God. 

2 Never more shall midnight's damp 
Darken round this mortal lamp ; 
Never more shall noonday's glance 
Search this mortal countenance. 

3 Look aloft. The spirit's risen, — 
Death cannot the soul imprison : 
'Tis in heaven that spirits dwell, 
Glorious, though invisible. 

4 Thither let us turn our view ; 
Peace is there, and comfort too : 
There shall those we love be found, 
Tracing joy's eternal round.

Cometh neither voice nor cry, 
Yet we know for thee to-day 
Every pain hath passed away. 



I I 

2 Not for thee shall tears be given, 
Child of God and heir of heaven ■ 
For he gave thee sweet release ; 
Thine the Christian's death of peace. 

3 Well we know thy living faith 
Had the power to conquer death ; 
As a living rose may bloom 

By the border of the tomb. 

4 Brother, in that solemn trust 
We commend thee, dust to dust ; 
In that faith we wait, till, risen, 
Thou shalt meet us all in heaven. 

5 While we weep as Jesus wept, 
Thou shalt sleep as Jesus slept ; 
With thy Saviour thou shalt rest, 
Crowned and o-lorified and blest.

Steadfast keep it in our breast,

OUO. Dews and Tears. S. F. ADAMS.

Lift us nearer unto heaven. 

Let us still his praise repeat, 
Who in mercy all hath given.

And glows once more with angel steps 
The path that leads to heaven. 

2 Oh half we deemed she needed not 

The changing of her sphere, 

To give to heaven a shining one, 

Who walked an angel here !

One thought hath reconciled, — 
That he whose love exceedeth ours 
Hath taken home his child. 

4 Fold her, O Father ! in thine arms, 
And let her henceforth be 
A messenger of love between 
Our human hearts and thee.

Between us and the wrong, 
And her dear memory serve to make

In brighter flames arrayed, 
My soul, which springs beyond thy sphere, 
No more demands thine aid. 

3 Ye stars are but the shining dust 

Of my divine abode, 
The pavement of those heavenly courts, 
Where I shall reign with God. 

4 No more the drops of piercing grief 

Shall swell into mine eyes ; 
Nor the meridian sun decline, 
Amid those brighter skies. 

5 There all the millions of his saints 

Shall in one song unite ; 
And each the bliss of all shall view 
With infinite delight.

His seal was on thy brow.

Soul, to its home on high : 
They that have seen thy look in death 
No more may fear to die.

But oh ! a brighter home than ours, 
In heaven, is now thine own.

1 The flower that grows within the shade 

Of unseen forest trees 
Lends not its fragrance to the waves 
Of every summer breeze. 

2 The wayward heart turns not to God 

In pleasure's fleeting dreams, 
When cares are few and skies are bright. 
And life the gayest seems. 

3 But when deep shades of sorrow fall 

Along the path we tread, 
And grassy mounds demand our tears 
For loved ones early dead, — 

4 Its sweetest fragrance then will rise 

In many a pleading word, 

And, penitent, in love give out 

Sweet incense to the Lord.

1 How blessed the righteous when he dies ! 
When sinks a weary soul to rest, 

How mildly beam the closing eyes, 
How gently heaves the expiring breast ! 

2 So fades a summer cloud away, 

So sinks the gale when storms are o'er, 
So gently shuts the eye of day, 
So dies a wave along the shore. 

3 A holy quiet reigns around, — 

A calm which life nor death destroys : 
Nothing disturbs that peace profound, 
Which his unfettered soul enjoys. 

4 Farewell, conflicting hopes and fears, 
Where lights and shades alternate dwell : 
How bright the unchanging morn appears ! 
Farewell, inconstant world, farewell. 

5 Life's duty done, as sinks the clay, 
Light from its load the spirit flies ; 
While heaven and earth combine to say, 
"How blessed the righteous when he 

dies ! "

Take this new treasure to thy trust ; 
And give these sacred relics room 
To slumber in the silent dust. 

2 No pain, no grief, no anxious fear, 
Invade thy bounds ; no mortal woes 
Can reach the peaceful sleepers here, 
While angels watch their soft repose. 

3 So Jesus slept : God's dying Son 
Passed thro' the grave, and blest the bed ; 
Then rest, dear saint, till from his throne 
The morning break, and pierce the shade. 

4 Break, sacred morning, from the skies ; 
Then, clothed anew in bright array. 
Immortal form, to life arise, 

And swell the song of endless day.

Farewell to a Friend departed. 



llKBKR- 



Thou art gone to the grave : but we will not deplore thee, 
Though sorrows and darkness encompass the tomb ; 

The Saviour has passed through its portals before thee, 
And the lamp of his love is thy guide through the gloom. 

Thou art gone to the grave : we no longer behold thee, 
Nor tread the rough paths of the world by thy side ; 

But the wide arms of mercy are spread to enfold thee, 
And sinners may hope, since the Saviour hath died. 

Thou art gone to the grave ; and, its mansion forsaking, 
Perchance thy weak spirit in doubt lingered long : 

But the sunshine of heaven beamed bright on thy waking, 
And the sound thou didst hear was the seraphim's song. 

Thou art gone to the grave ; but we will not deplore thee, 
Since God was thy Refuge, thy Guardian, thy Guide ; 

He gave thee, he took thee, and he will restore thee ; 
And death has no sting, since the Saviour hath died.

A Christian cannot die before his time ; 

The Lord's appointment is the servant's hour.

Rest on thy sheaves, — thy harvest task is done ; 
Come from the heat of battle, and in peace, 
Soldier, go home, — with thee the fight is won. 

3 Go to the grave ; for there thy Saviour lay 
In death's embraces, ere he rose on high ; 
And all the ransomed, by that narrow way, 
Pass to eternal life beyond the sky.

"Where thou for faith and hope hast perfect love, 
And open vision for the written word.

They are carried out to slumber 

Sweetly where the violets lie.

When with summer earth is drcst, 
In their cold hands holding roses 

Folded to each silent breast ; 
When the autumn hangs red banners 

Out above the harvest sheaves, 
They are going, ever going, 

Thick and fast, like falling leaves.

Little hands as pure as they ;

From the heart once full of day ; 

Till the stars of heaven are breaking 
Through the twilight soft and gray. 

2 Only waiting, till the reapers 

Have the last sheaf gathered home ; 
For the summer-time is faded. 

And the autumn winds have come. 
Quickly, reapers, — gather quickly 

These last ripe hours of my heart ; 
For the bloom of life is withered, 

And I hasten to depart.

Only waiting, till the glimmer

Holy, deathless stars shall rise, 
By whose light my soul shall gladly 

Tread its pathway to the skies.

Thou no more wilt join our number ;

But "tis God that hath bereft us :

Then, in heaven, with joy to greet thee, 
Where no farewell tear is shed.

The clod may sleep in dust beneath ; 
The spirit will be free. 

2 Both man and time have power 
O'er suffering, dying men ; 

But death arrives, and in that hour 
The soul is freed again. 

3 Then, death, where is thy sting? 
And where thy victor}-, grave ? 

O'er your dark bourn the soul will spring 
To Him who loves to save

O spieit freed from earth, 
Rejoice, thy work is done ! 
The weary world's beneath thy feet, 
Thou brighter than the sun. 

2 Arise, put on the robes 
That the redeemed win : 

Xow sorrow hath no part in thee.

3 Awake, and breathe the air 
Of the celestial clime ; 

Awake to love which knows no change, 
Thou who hast done with time. 

4 Awake, lift up thine eyes ; 

See ! all heaven's host appears ; 

And be thou glad exceedingly, — 

Thou, who hast done with tears. 

5 Ascend ; thou art not now 
"With those of mortal birth ; 

The living God hath touched thy lips, 
Thou who hast done with earth.

Death of the Righteous. W. B. O. Feabody 



1 Behold the western evening light ! 

It melts in deepening gloom : 
So calm the righteous sink away, 
Descending to the tomb. 

2 The winds breathe low ; the yellow leaf 

Scarce whispers from the tree : 
So gently flows the parting breath, 
When good men cease to be. 

3 How beautiful, on all the hills, 

The crimson light is shed ! 
'Tis like the peace the dying gives 
To mourners round his bed. 

4 How mildly, on the wandering cloud, 

The sunset beam is cast ! 
So sweet the memory left behind, 
When loved ones breathe their last. 

5 And lo ! above the dews of night 

The vesper star appears : 
So faith lights up the mourner's heart, 
Whose eyes are dim with tears. 



C Night falls ; but soon the morning light 
Its glories shall restore : 
And thus the eyes that sleep in death 
Shall wake to close no more. 



530. 



Alone in Death. 



Anon. 



1 Tnou must go forth alone, my soul, — 

Thou must go forth alone, 
To other scenes, to other worlds, 
That mortal hath not known. 

2 Thou must go forth alone, my soul, 

To tread the narrow vale ; 
But He whose word is sure hath said 
His comforts shall not fail. 

3 Thou must go forth alone, my soul, 

To meet thy God above ; 
But shrink not, — he hath said, my soul, 
He is a God of love. 

4 His rod and staff shall comfort thee 

Across the dreary road, 
Till thou shalt join the blessed ones 
In heaven's serene abode.

The whole Family in Eeaven and Earth. 



1 So heaven is gathering, one by one, 

In its capacious breast, 
All that is pure and permanent, 
And beautiful and blest. 

2 The family is scattered yet, 

Though of one home and heart : 
Part militant in earthly gloom, 
In heavenly glory part. 

3 But who can speak the rapture, when 

The number is complete ; 
And all the children sundered now, 
Around one Father meet ? 

4 One fold, one Shepherd, one employ; 

One everlasting home, 
Our Father's house, from whose dear rest 
No wanderer e'er shall roam.

Peaceful Death of the Righteous. A.TSOT&. 



1 I looked upon the righteous man, 
And saw his parting breath. 



Without a struggle or a sigh, 

Serenely yield to death. 
There was no anguish on his brow, 

Nor terror in his eye : 
The spoiler aimed a fatal dart, 

But lost the victory. 

2 I looked upon the righteous man, 

And heard the holy prayer 
Which rose above that breathless form, 

To soothe the mourner's care ; 
And felt how precious was the gift 

He to his loved ones gave, — 
The stainless memory of the just, 

The wealth beyond the grave. 



I looked upon the righteous man ; 

And all our earthly trust 
Of pleasure, vanity, or pride 

Seemed lighter than the dust, 
Compared with his celestial gain, — 

A home above the sky : 
Oh grant us, Lord, his life to live, 

That we, like him, may die !

Children in Heaven. 



Anon. 



1 In the broad fields of heaven, 

In the immortal bowers, 
By life's clear river dwelling, 

Amid undying flowers, — 
There hosts of beauteous spirits, 

Fair children of the earth, 
Linked in bright bands celestial, 

Sing of their human birth. 

2 They sing of earth and heaven : 

Divinest voices rise 
To God, their gracious Father, 

Who called them to the skies. 
They all are there, — in heaven, • 

Safe, safe, and sweetly blest ; 
No cloud of sin can shadow 

Their bright and holy rest. 



534. 



Re-union in Heaven. 



1 No seas again shall sever, 

No desert intervene, 
No deep sad-flowing river 

Shall roll its tide between. 
Love and unsevered union 

Of soul with those we love, 
Nearness and glad communion, 

Shall be our joy above. 

2 No dread of wasting sickness, 

No thought of ache or pain, 
No fretting hours of weakness, 

Shall mar our peace again. 
No death, our homes o'ershading, 

Shall e'er our harps 'unstring; 
For all is life unfading 

In presence of our King.

FREEMAN. 



1 Lord of the worlds below, 
On earth thy glories shine ; 
The changing seasons show 
Thy skill and power divine. 

In all we see a God appears : 
The rolling years are full of thee. 

2 Forth in the flowery spring, 
We see thy beauty move ; 
The birds on branches sing 
Thy tenderness and love ; 

Wide flush the hills ; the air is balm 
Devotion's calm our bosom fills. 

3 Then come, in robes of light, 
The summer's flaming days ; 
The sun, thine image bright, 
Thy majesty displays ; 

And oft thy voice in thunder rolls : 
But still our souls in thee rejoice. 

4 In autumn, a rich feast 
Thy common bounty gives 
To man and bird and beast, 
And every thing that lives. 



Thy liberal care, at morn and noon 
And harvest moon, our lips declare. 

) In winter, awful thou, 

With storms around thee cast : 
The leafless forests bow 
Beneath thy northern blast. [King, 
While tempests lower, to thee, dread 
We homage bring, and own thy power.

From low delights and mortal toys,

2 Descend, celestial Dove, 

With all thy quickening powers ; 
Disclose a Saviour's love, 
And bless these sacred hours : 
Then shall my soul new life obtain, 
Nor sabbaths be enjoyed in vain.

Hymns of adoration sing ! 

For his mercies still endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

2 Praise him that he made the sun 
Day by day his course to run ; 
And the silver moon by night, 
Shining with her gentle light. 

3 Praise him that he gave the rain 
To mature the swelling grain, 
And hath bid the fruitful field 
Crops of precious increase yield. 

i Praise him for our harvest-store ; 
He hath filled the garner-floor: 
And for richer food than this, 
Pledge of everlasting bliss.

Glory let creation sing ; 
For his mercies still endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure.

A New Year, Hymss of the Snrit. 



541. 



1 Joy ! joy ! a year is born, — 
A year to man is given 

For hope and peace and love, 
For faith and truth and heaven. 
Though earth be dark with care, 
With death and sorrow rife, 
Yet toil and pain and prayer 
Lead to our higher life. 

2 Behold ! the fields are white ; 
No longer idly stand : 

Go forth in love and might ; 
Man needs thy helping hand. 
Thus may each day and year 
To prayer and toil be given ; 
Till man to God draw near, 
And earth become like heaven. 



Note. — This hymn can be sung to either tune by ty- 
ing the first two notes of each line, and repeating the 
first two lines of Turin. 



The New Year. J. NEWTON. 

1 While, with ceaseless course, the sun 
Hasted through the former year, 
Many souls their race have run, 
Never more to meet us here. 

Fixed in an eternal state, 
They have done with all below : 
We a little longer wait ; 
But how little, none can know. 

2 As the winged arrow flies 
Speedily the mark to find ; 

As the lightning from the skies 
Darts, and leaves no trace behind, — 
Swiftly thus our fleeting days 
Bear us down life's rapid stream : 
Upward, Lord, our spirits raise ; 
All below is but a dream. 

3 Thanks for mercies past receive, 
Pardon of our sins renew ; 
Teach us henceforth how to live 
With eternity in view. 

Bless thy word to young and old ; 
Fill us with a Saviour's love ; 
And, when life's short tale is told, 
May we dwell with thee above !

1 Father of mercies, God of peace, 
Being whose bounties never cease, — 
While to the heavens, in grateful tones, 
Ascend our mingled orisons, 

Listen to these, the notes of praise, 
Which we, a happy people, raise. 

2 Our hamlets, sheltered by thy care, 
Abodes of peace and plenty are ; 
Our tillage, by thy blessing, yields 
A hundred-fold from ripened fields : 
And laden bough and burthened vine 
Are tokens of thy love divine. 

3 The cradled head of infancy 
Doth owe its tranquil rest to thee ; 
Youth's eager step, man's firmer tread, 
In years mature by thee are led ; 
Secure may trembling age, O Lord ! 
Lean on its staff, — thy holy word. 

4 Teach us these blessings to improve ; 
Teach us to serve thee, teach to love ; 
Exalt our hearts, that we may see 
The Giver of all good in thee ; 

And be thy word our daily food, — 
Thy service, Lord, our highest good.

The extended trade, the fruitful skies, 
The treasures liberty bestows, 

The eternal joys the gospel shows, — 
All from thy boundless goodness rise 

2 With grateful hearts, with joyful tongues. 
To God we raise united songs. 

Here still may God in mercy reign, 
Crown our just counsels with success, 
With peace and joy our borders bless, 
And all our sacred rights maintain.

And safe beneath our sheltering vines

That thou didst plant our fathers here ; 
And watch and guard them as they grew, 
A vineyard, to the planter dear.

Thy hand supports the steady pole ; 
The sun is taught by thee to rise, 
And darkness when to veil the skies. 

3 Seasons and months and weeks and days 
Demand successive songs of praise : 
Still be the cheerful homage paid, 
With opening light and evening shade.

In worlds unknown pursue the songs ; 
And in those brighter courts adore, 
Where days and years revolve no more !

And man, who moves the lord of earth.

3 While suppliant crowds implore thine aid. 
To thee we raise the humble cry : 
Thine altar is the contrite heart ; 
Thine incense, a repentant sigh. 

4 Oh may our land, in this her hour, 
Confess thy hand, and bless the rod ; 
By penitence make thee her friend, 
And find in thee a guardian God !

1 Now let our prayers ascend to thee, 

Thou great and holy One ; 
Above the world raise thou our hearts ; 
In us thy will be done. 

2 Oh let us feel how frail we are, 

How much we need thy grace ! 
Oh strengthen, Lord, our fainting souls, 
While here we seek thy face ! 

3 Our sins, alas ! before thee rise ; 

Thou knowest all our guilt : 
Let not our faith, our hope, our trust, 
On earthly things be built. 

4 Forgive our sins, thy Spirit grant, 

Let love our souls refine, 
And heavenly peace and holy hope 
Assure that we are thine. 



/ humbled my Soul with Fasting. Ps. xxxv.

1 Out of the depths I cry to thee, 
Lord God : oh hear my prayer ! 
Incline a gracious ear to me, 
And bid me not despair. 



2 My hope I rest on thee, Lord ! 

My works I count but dust : 
I build not there, but on thy word 
And in thy goodness trust. 

3 Tho' great my sins, and sore my wounds, 

And deep and dark my fall, 
Thy helping mercy hath no bounds ; 
Thy love surpasseth all.

Thy goodness marked its secret birth.

Goodness of God in the Seasons. Axon. 



1 Great God, at whose all-powerful call 
At first arose this beauteous frame, 
Thou bldst the seasons change, and all 
The changing seasons speak thy name. 

2 Thy bounty bids the infant year, 
From winter storms recovered, rise ; 
When thousand grateful scenes appear, 
Fresh opening to our wondering eyes. 

3 The new delight how great, to see 
The earth in vernal beauty dressed, 
While in each herb and flower and tree 
Thy opening bounty shines confessed ! 

4 Aloft, full beaming, reigns the sun, 
And light and genial heat conveys ; 
And while he leads the seasons on, 
From thee derives his quickening rays. 

5 Indulgent God, from every part 
Thy plenteous blessings largely flow: 
We see, we taste ; let every heart 
With grateful love and duty glow.

1 Great God, we sing that mighty hand 
By which, supported, still we stand : 
The opening year thy mercy shows ; 
That mercy crowns it till it close. 

2 By day, by night; at home, abroad,— 
Still are we guarded by our God ; 

By his incessant bounty fed, 
By his unerring counsel led. 

3 With grateful hearts the past we own : 
The future, all to us unknown, 

We to thy guardian care commit, 
And, peaceful, leave before thy feet. 

4 In scenes exalted or depressed, 
Thou art our joy, and thou our rest ; 
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise 
Adored through all our changing days. 

5 Though death shall interrupt these songs 
And seal in silence mortal tongues, 
Our helper, God, in whom we trust, 

In better worlds our souls shall boast.

The boundless years and ages lie, 
Teach us thy boon of life to prize, 
And use the moments as they fly;

With wise designs and virtuous deeds : 
So shall we wake from death's dark night, 
To share the glory that succeeds.

To thee of causes still the Cause : 

We thank thee that thy hand bestows ; 
We bless thee that thy love withdraws.

We come to thee with no complaint :

Here in thy temple bow thy creatures down, 
To bless thy mercy, and thy might to own. 

2 Thine arc the beams that cheer us on our way, 
And pour around the gladdening light of day; 
Thine is the night, and the fair orbs that shine 
To cheer its hours of darkness : all are thine. 



E. Taylo* 



3 If round our path the thorns of sorrow grew, 
And mortal friends were faithless, thou wert true; 
Did sickness shake the frame, or anguish tear 
The wounded spirit, thou wert present there. 

4 Yet, when our hearts review departed days, 
How vast thy mercies ! how remiss our praise ! 
Well may we dread thine awful eye to meet, 
Bend at thy throne, and worship at thy feet. 

5 Oh lend thine ear, and lift our voice to thee; 
Where'er we dwell, still let thy mercy be ; 
From year to year, still nearer to thy shrine 
Draw our frail hearts, and make them wholly thine.

1 "Is this a fast forme?" 
Thus saith the Lord our God ; 

" A day for man to vex his soul, 
And feel affliction's rod ? 

2 " No : is not this alone 
The sacred fast I choose, 

Oppression's yoke to burst in twain, 
The bands of guilt unloose ? 

3 "To nakedness and want 
Your food and raiment deal, 

To dwell your kindred race among, 
And all their sufferings heal ? 

4 " Then, like the morning ray, 
Shall spring your health and light : 

Before you, righteousness shall shine ; 
Behind, my glory bright." 

OOt/» Confession of Sin. Ancient Hymns. 

1 Before thy mercy's throne, 
Thy succor, Lord, we seek : 
For thou art good and great alone ; 
All helpless we, and weak. 



2 Like sheep that go astray, 
Our wilful course we've run, — 

From what thou wouldst, have turned away , 
And what thou wouldst not, done. 

3 Pour, for the Saviour's sake, 
Thy Spirit's healthful dew 

On those who fain would sin forsake, 
And thy pure ways pursue.

1 Give forth thine earnest cry, 
O conscience, voice of God ! 

To young and old, to low and high* 
Proclaim his will abroad. 

2 Within the human breast 
Thy strong monitions plead ; 

Still thunder thy divine protest 
Against the unrighteous deed. 

3 Show the true way of peace, 
O Thou our guiding light! 

From bondage of the wrong release, 
To service of the right.

The Soul Returning to God. 



Montgomery. 



1 Return, my soul, unto thy rest, 
From vain pursuits and maddening cares, 
From lonely woes that wring thy breast, 
The world's allurements, toils, and snares. 

2 Return unto thy rest, my soul, 

From all the wanderings of thy thought, 
From sickness unto death made whole, 
Safe through a thousand perils brought. 

'6 Then to thy rest, my soul, return, 
From passions every hour at strife : 
Sin's works and ways and wages spurn ; 
Lay hold upon eternal life. 

4 God is thy rest, — with heart inclined 
To keep his word, that word believe ; 
Christ is thy rest, — with lowly mind 
His light and easy yoke receive.

Communing with our Hearts. Doddridob. 



1 Return, my roving heart, return, 
And chase these shadowy forms no more ; 
Seek out some solitude to mourn, 

And thy forsaken God implore. 

2 Wisdom and pleasure dwell at home ; 
Retired and silent seek them there : 
True conquest is ourselves to o'ercome, 
True strength to break temptation's snare. 

3 And thou, my God, whose piercing eye 
Distinct surveys each deep recess, 

In these abstracted hours draw nigh, 
And with thy presence fill the place 

4 Through all the mazes of my heart, 
My search let heavenly wisdom guide ; 
And still its radiant beams impart, 
Till all be searched and purified.

Inconstancy Lamented. Beddosie. 



1 The wandering star and fleeting wind 
Are emblems of the fickle mind ; 

The morning cloud and early dew 
Bring our inconstancy to view. 

2 But cloud and wind and dew and star 
Only a faint resemblance bear ; 

Nor can there aught in nature be 
So changeable and frail as we. 

3 Our outward walk and inward frame 
Are scarcely through an hour the same : 
"We vow, and straight our vows forget, 
And then those very vows repeat. 

4 With contrite hearts, Lord, we confess 
Our folly and unsteadfastness : 

When shall these hearts more stable be, 
Fixed by thy grace alone on thee !

Hath brought us here, before thy face, —

As offerings, on thy holy shrine : [ours ; 
Thine was the strength that nourished 
The soldiers of the Cross are thine. 

3 While watching on our arms, at night, 
We saw thine angels round us move ; 
We heard thy call, we felt thy light, 
And followed, trusting to thy love. 

4 Send us where'er thou wilt, O Lord ! 
Through rugged toil and wearying fight, 
Thy conquering love shall be our sword, 
And faith in thee our truest might. 

5 Send down thy constant aid, we pray ; 
Be thy pure angels with us still; 

Thy truth, — be that our firmest stay; 
Our only rest, to do thy will.

Follow Me. 



G. Barmby. 



1 Beside the shore of Galilee 

A voice was heard across the sea, - 
A voice at once of tender tone, 
Yet solemn as an organ's own ; 
And humble fishers, as they heard, 
Forgot their nets, obeyed its word, 
Left all, disciples true to be ; 
For Christ had uttered, Follow me. 

2 As, seated at the custom's board, 
The faithful Levi saw the Lord, 
And in his heart the bell was rung 

For worship from that fruitful tongue, — 

lie left his trade, he left his gold ; 

His heart grew large, his breast was bold : 

He went disciple true to be, 

For Christ had told him, Follow me. 

3 And still e'en now Ave hear that voice . 
Hark ! silvery strains, Rejoice ! rejoice 
Above the clouds, beyond the air, 

Up highest heavens' sapphire stair, 
Beyond life's gate of mortal bar, 
From sky to sky, from star to star, 
It quivereth, echoeth, floweth free; 
For Christ still calleth, FoIIoav me.

1 May I resolve with all my heart, 
With all my powers, to serve the Lord ; 
Nor from his precepts e'er depart, 
Whose service is a rich reward ! 

2 Be this the purpose of my soul, 

My solemn, my determined choice, — 
To yield to his supreme control, 
And in his kind commands rejoice.

Nor, wandering, leave his sacred ways ! 
Great God, accept my soul's desire, 
And give me strength to live thy praise.

1 My gracious God, I own thy right 
To every service I can pay ; 

And call it my supreme delight 
To hear thy dictates, and obey. 

2 What is my being but for thee, 
Its sure support, its noblest end ? 
Thy ever-smiling face to see, 

And serve the cause of such a friend ? 



3 Thy work my feeble age shall bless, 
When youthful vigor is no more ; 
And my last hour of life confess 
Thy love hath animating power.

Seeking Pardon and Aid. Ps. 51. "Watts. 



1 O Tuou that hear'st when sinners cry ! 
Though all my crimes before thee lie, 
Behold them not with angry look, 

But blot their memory from thy book. 

2 I cannot live without thy light, 

Cast out and banished from thy sight : 
Thy holy joys, my God, restore, 
And guard me that I fall no more 

3 A broken heart, my God, my King, 
Is all the sacrifice I bring : 

The God of grace will ne'er despise 
A broken heart for sacrifice. 

4 Oh may thy love inspire my tongue ! 
Salvation shall be all my song ; 
And all my powers shall join to bless 
The Lord, my strength and righteousness.

O/U. Return. Furness. 

1 Unworthy to be called thy son, 

I come with shame to thee, 
Father ! Oh more than Father thou 
Hast always been to me ! 

2 Help me to break the heavy chains 

The world has round me thrown, 
And know the glorious liberty 
Of an obedient son. 

3 That I may henceforth heed whate'er 

Thy voice within me saith, 
Fix deeply in my heart of hearts 
A principle of faith, — 

4 Faith that, like armor to my soul, 

Shall keep all evil out, 
More mighty than an angel host 
Encamping round about. 

{ 1 . Man's Need of God's Help. COWPER. 

1 Weak and irresolute is man: 

The purpose of to-day, 
Woven with pains into his plan, 
To-morrow rends away. 



2 Some foe to his upright intent 

Finds out his weaker part : 
Virtue engages his assent, 
But pleasure wins his heart. 

3 Bound on a voyage of fearful length, 

Through dangers little known, 
A stranger to superior strength, 
Man vainly trusts his own. 

4 But oars alone can ne'er prevail 

To reach the distant coast : 
The breath of heaven must swell the sail, 
Or all the toil is lost.

And quickening energy ; 
Still running, toiling in the race:

Help us in thought and word and deed,

2 Oh help us when our spirits bleed 

With contrite anguish sore ! 
And when our hearts are cold and dead, 
Oh help us, Lord, the more ! 

3 Oh help us, through the prayer of faith, 

More firmly to believe ! 
For still the more the servant hath, 
The more shall he receive. 

4 Oh help us, Father, from on high ! 

We know no help but thee : 
Oh help us so to live and die, 
As thine in heaven to be !

1 Blest Instructor, from thy ways 
Who can tell how oft he strays ? 
Purge me from the guilt that lies 
Wrapt within my heart's disguise. 

2 Let my tongue, from error free, 
Speak the words approved by thee; 
To thy all-observing eyes, 

Let my thoughts accepted rise. 

3 While I thus thy name adore 
And thy healing grace implore, 
Blest Redeemer, bow thine ear ; 
God, my strength, propitious hear.

From thy ways that I depart,

Still I have a choice to make : 
Oh decide my will to-day !

Forgive us our Trespasses." J. Taylor. 



1 God of mercy, God of love, 
Hear our sad, repentant songs : 
Listen to thy suppliant ones, 
Thou to whom all grace belongs. 

2 Deep our shame for follies past, 
Talents wasted, time misspent ; 
Hearts debased by worldly cares, 
Thankless for the blessings lent ; 

3 Foolish fears and fond desires, 
Vain regrets for things as vain ; 
Lips too seldom taught to praise, 
Oft to murmur and complain. 

4 These and every secret fault, 
Filled with grief and shame, we own 
Humbled at thy feet we bow, 
Seeking strength from thee alone. 

5 God of mercy, God of love, 
Hear our sad, repentant songs ; 
Oh restore thy suppliant ones, 
Thou to whom all grace belongs !

From thy Father's happy home, 
With thyself and God at war ? 
Turn thee, brother : homeward come. 

2 Hast thou wasted all the powers 
God for noble uses gave ? 
Squandered life's most golden hours ? 
Turn thee, brother : God can save. 

3 Is a mighty famine now 

In thy heart and in thy soul ? 

Discontent upon thy brow ? 

Turn thee : God will make thee whole. 



4 Fall before him on the ground, 
Pour thy sorrow in his ear, 
Seek him while he may be found, 
Call upon him, — he is near.

And it seems that earth has nought 
But a vain and weary strife ; 

2 All to do, and nothing done ; 
Useless days fast fleeting by ; 
Wanderings many, progress none ; 
Faltering steps by fountains dry, — 

3 Shall we, in that hapless mood, 
Fainting, fall beside the way ? 
Help us, Giver of all good ; 
Teach thy wearv ones to pray.

Raise us from our low estate ; 
Breathe in us the will to find 
Higher life in small and great !

OOO. " Father, I have sinned." s. Longfellow 

1 Love for all ! and can it be ? 
Can I hope it is for me ? 

I, who strayed so long ago, — 
Strayed so far, and fell so low ! 

2 I, the disobedient child, 
Wayward, passionate, and wild ; 
I, who left my Father's home, 
In forbidden ways to roam ! 

3 I, who spurned his loving hold ; 
I, who would not be controlled ; 
I, who would not hear his call ; 
I, the wilful prodigal ! 

4 I, who wasted and misspent 
Every talent he had lent ; 
I, who sinned again, again, 
Giving every passion rein ! 

5 To my Father can I go ? — 
At his feet myself I'll throw : 
In his house there yet may be 
Place, a servant's place, for me. 

6 See ! my Father waiting stands ; 
See ! he reaches out his hands ; 



omitting the repeat 

God is love : I know, I see 
There is love for me, — even me. 

OOO Prayer for Mercy in Spiritual Need.

1 Lord, have mercy when we pray 
Strength to seek a better way : 
When our wakening thoughts begin 
First to loathe their cherished sin ; 
When our weary spirits fail, 

And our aching brows are pale ; 
When our tears bedew thy word, — 
Then, oh then ! have mercy, Lord. 

2 Lord, have mercy when we lie 
On the restless bed, and sigh, — 
Sigh for death, yet fear it still, 
From the thought of former ill ; 
When the dim, advancing gloom 
Tells us that our hour has come ; 
When is loosed the silver cord, — 
Then, oh then ! have mercy, Lord. 

3 Lord, have mercy when we know 
First how vain this world below ; 
When its darker thoughts oppress, 
Doubts perplex, and fears distress ;

When the world our hearts would win ; 
When, to selfish pleasures given, 
Droops the love that blooms for heaven, — 
Lord, we would remember thee : 

Thou wilt our Redeemer be. 

2 When, with footsteps faint and slow, 
Duty's upward path we go ; 

When, by toils and hardship pressed, 
Round we turn to look for rest, — 
Lord, we would remember thee : 
Thou our Guide and Strength wilt be. 

8 When the day grows dark and drear ; 
"When, beset by doubt and fear, 
We can see no beam of light 
Struggling thro 1 the thickening night, —

The Christian Warfare. H. K. WHITB. 



1 Onward, Christians, onward go ; 
Join the war, and face the foe : 
Faint not ; much doth yet remain, 
Dreary is the long campaign, 

2 Shrink not, Christians: will ye yield? 
Will ye quit the painful field ? 

Will ye flee in danger's hour ? 
Know ye not your Captain's power ? 

3 Let your drooping hearts be glad ; 
March, in heavenly armor clad ; 
Fight, nor think the battle long : 
Victory soon shall tune your song. 

4 Let not sorrow dim your eye ; 
Soon shall every tear be dry : 
Let not woe your course impede ; 
Great your strength, if great your need. 

5 Onward, then, to battle move ; 
More than conquerors ye shall prove : 
Though opposed by many a foe, 
Christian soldiers, onward go.

500 The Christianas Life and his Hope. 

* GlSBORNB. 

1 A soldier's course from battles won 
To new-commencing strife ; 
A pilgrim's, restless as the sun, — 
Behold the Christian's life ! 



2 Oh let us seek our heavenly home, 

Revealed in sacred lore ; 
The land whence pilgrims never roam, 
Where soldiers war no more. 

3 Where grief shall never wound, nor death. 

Beneath the Saviour's reign ; 
Nor sin, with pestilential breath. 
His holy realm profane ; 

4 The land where, suns and moons unknown, 

And night's alternate sway, 
Jehovah's ever-burning throne 
Upholds unbroken day ; 

5 Where they who meet shall never part ; 

Where grace achieves its plan ; 
And God, uniting every heart, 
Dwells face to face with man.

The Wliole Armor. 



Anon. 



1 Oh speed thee, Christian, on thy way, 

And to thy armor cling ; 
With girded loins the call obey 
That grace and mercy bring! 

2 There is a battle to be fought, 

An upward race to run, 
A crown of glory to be sought, 
A victory to be won. 

8 Oh faint not, Christian ! for thy sighs 
Are heard before his throne : 
The race must come before the prize, 
The cross before the crown.

Life with God. 



T. H. Gill. 



1 Alas the outer emptiness ! 

What life has it to give ? 
Oh ! shall it God's own fire oppress ? 
Soul, wilt thou slightly live ? 

2 Some joy of thine own seeking win ; 

To thine own strength repair : 
Breathe, breathe the awful life within ; 
Feel all the glory there. 

3 Thyself amidst the silence clear, 

The world far off and dim, 
Thy vision free, the Bright One near, 
Thyself alone with him. 

4 The silence thronged gloriously 

With business how divine ! 

God's glory passing unto thee, 

All heaven becoming thine. 

5 The rapture, mighty, measureless, 

In each eternal thing ; 
The mingling with Almightiness, 
The dwelling by life's Spring.

1 God of all grace, we come to thee, 

With broken, contrite hearts : 
Give what thine eye delights to see,. — 
Truth in the inward parts. 

2 Give deep humility ; the sense 

Of godly sorrow give ; 
A strong, desiring confidence 
To hear thy voice, and live ; 

3 Patience, to watch and wait and weep, 

Though mercy long delay ; 
Courage, our fainting souls to keep, 
And trust thee, though thou slay. 

4 Give these ; and then thy will be done ; 

Thus strengthened with all might, 
We, by thy Spirit and thy Son, 
Shall pray, and pray aright.

Thy word I would obey :

When from thy truth I stray.

Sometimes bedim my sight : 
I look to thee with prayers and tears, 
And cry for strength and light. 

3 Lord, I believe ; but oft, I know, 

My faith is cold and weak : 
Strengthen my weakness, and bestow 
The confidence I seek. 

4 Yes, I believe ; and only thou 

Canst give my soul relief: 
Lord, to thy truth my spirit bow. 
Help thou my unbelief.

OtJt, Prayer for Prudence and Wisdom. Smart. Ot/O. Walking with God. Doddbidge. 



1 Father of light, conduct my feet 

Through life's dark, dangerous road ; 
Let each advancing step still bring 
Me nearer to my God. 

2 Let heaven-eyed prudence be my guide ; 

And, when I go astray, 
Recall my feet from folly's path, 
To wisdom's better way. 

3 Teach me in every various scene 

To keep my end in sight ; 
And, while I tread life's mazy track, 
Let wisdom guide me right. 

4 That heavenly wisdom from above 

Abundantly impart, 
And let it guard and guide and warm 
And penetrate my heart, 

6 Till it shall lead me to thyself, 
Fountain of bliss and love ; 
And all my darkness be dispersed 
In endless light above. 



1 Thrice happy souls, who, born from 

While yet they sojourn here, [heaven 
Do all their days with God begin, 
And spend them in his fear. 

2 'Midst hourly cares, may love present 

Its incense to thy throne ; 
And, while the world our hands emrloys, 
Our hearts be thine alone ! 

3 As sanctified to noblest ends, 

Be each refreshment sought ; 
And by each various providence 
Some wise instruction brought. 

4 As different scenes of life arise, 

Our grateful hearts would be 
With thee amidst the social band ; 
In solitude, with thee. 

5 In solid, pure delights like these, 

Let all our days be passed ; 
Nor shall we then impatient wish, 
Nor shall we fear the last.

1 O Thou, to whose all-searching sight 
The darkness shineth as the light !

Oh burst these bonds, and set it free !

No foes, no violence, I fear; 

No ill, while thou, my God, art near.

UU^. Humble Service. II. M. Kimball. 

1 It is an easy thing to say, 

" Thou knowest that I love thee, Lord ; " 

And easy, in the bitter fray 

For his defence, to draw the sword. 

2 But when, at his dear hands, we seek 
Some lofty trust for him to keep, 

To our ambition, vain and weak, — 
How strange his bidding, "Feed my 
sheep " ! 

3 " Too mean a task for love," we cry ; 
Remembering not, if, in our pride, 
We pass his humble service by, 

Our vows are by our deeds denied. 

4 O Father ! help us to resign 

Our hearts, our strength, our will to thee : 
Then, even lowliest work of thine 
Most noble, blest, and sweet will be. 

603. R eligion the One Thing Needful. 

Doddridge. 

I Why do we waste, in trifling cares, 
The lives divine compassion spares ; 
While, thro 1 the various range of thought, 
The one thing needful is forgot ? 



2 Our Father calls us from above , 
Our Saviour pleads his dying love ; 
Awakened conscience gives us pain . 
Shall all these pleas unite in vain p 

3 Not so our dying eyes will view 
The objects which we now pursue ; 
Xot so eternity appear, 

When death's decisive hour is near. 

4 Then wake, my soul ; thy way prepare, 
And lose in this each meaner care : 
With steady step that path be trod, 
Which thro' the grave conducts to God.

Serving God in Daily Labor. C. Wesley 



1 Forth in thy name, Lord ! we go, 
Our daily labor to pursue : 

Thee, only thee, resolved to know, 
In all we think or speak or do.

And every moment watch and pray ; 
Would still to things eternal look, 
And hasten to thy glorious day.

Christian Fidelity. C. WESLEY. 



1 A charge to keep I have, 
A God to glorify ; 

A never-dying soul to save, 

And fit it for the sky ; 

To serve the present age, 

My calling to fulfil : 
Oh may it all my powers engage 

To do my Masters will ! 

2 Arm me with jealous care, 
As in thy sight to live ; 

And oh thy servant, Lord, prepare 

The strict account to give ! 

Help me to watch and pray, 

And on thyself rely : 
Assured, if I my trust betray, 

I shall forsaken die. 

DUO. Christian Watchfulness. Doddridge. 

1 Ye servants of the Lord, 
Each in his office wait, 

Observant of his heavenly word, 
And watchful at his gate. 

2 Let all your lamps be bright, 
And trim the golden flame : 



Gird up your loins, as in his sight ; 
For awful is his name. 

3 Watch : 'tis your Lord's command ; 
And, while we speak, he's near* 

Mark the first signal of his hand, 
And ready all appear. 

4 O happy servant he, 

In such a posture found ! 
He shall his Lord with rapture see, 
And be with honor crowned 

607. Purity. 

1 Oh know ye not that ye 
The temple are of God ? 

Revere the earth-built shrine, where he 
Should find a meet abode. 

2 Immortal man, keep pure 
The soul's mysterious shrine : 

No stain upon its robes endure, 
That should be all divine. 

3 Let life, a holy stream* 
Its fountain holy show ; 

Reflecting, with a softened gleam, 
Heaven's purity below.

Ten thousand foes arise ;

Nor once at ease sit down :

Chooseth the pure in heart.

27ie Christian Race. 



Watts. 



1 Awake, our souls ; away, our fears, — 
Let every trembling thought be gone ; 
Awake, and run the heavenly race, 
And put a cheerful courage on. 

2 True, 'tis a strait and thorny road, 
And mortal spirits tire and faint ; 
But they forget the mighty God, 

That i'ceds the strength of every saint, — 

8 The mighty God, whose matchless power 
Is ever new and ever young, 
And firm endures, while endless years 
Their everlasting circles run. 

4 From thee, the overflowing spring, 
Our souls shall drink a fresh supply ; 
While such as trust their native strength 
Shall melt away, and droop and die. 

5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air, 
We'll mount aloft to thine abode ; 
On wings of love our souls shall fly, 
Nor tire amidst the heavenly road.

The Christian Warfare. Mrs. Babbaulu. 



1 Awake, my soul : lift up thine eyes, — 
See where thy foes against thee rise, 
In long array, a numerous host ! 
Awake, my soul, or thou art lost. 

2 Thou tread'st upon enchanted ground ; 
Perils and snares beset thee round : 
Beware of all ; guard every part, 
But most the traitor in thy heart. 

3 Come, then, my soul : now learn to wield 
The weight of thine immortal shield ; 
Put on the armor from above, 

Of heavenly truth and heavenly love. 

4 The terror and the charm repel, 

And powers of earth, and powers of hell : 
The man of Calvary triumphed here, - 
Why should his faithful followers fear?

The Christian Soldier. Moxtgoio:ey. 



1 The Christian warrior, — see him stand 
In the whole armor of his God ! 

The Spirit's sword is in his hand, 
His feet are with the gospel shod ; 

2 In panoply of truth complete, 
Salvation's helmet on his head, 

With righteousness, a breastplate meet, 
And faith's broad shield before him spread : 

3 With this omnipotence he moves, 
From this the alien armies flee ; 
Till more than conqueror he proves, 
Through Christ, who gives him victory. 



4 Thus, strong in his Redeemer's strength, 
Sin, death, and hell he tramples down ; 
Fights the good fight ; and wins at length, 
Through mercy, an immortal crown.

1 Assist us, Lord, to act, to be, 
What nature and thy laws decree, 
Worthy that intellectual flame 
Which from thy breathing Spirit came. 

2 Our moral freedom to maintain, 
Bid passion serve, and reason reign ; 
Self-poised, and independent still 
On this world's varying good or ill. 

3 May our expanded souls disclaim 
The narrow view, the selfish aim ; 
But with a Christian zeal embrace 
Whate'er is friendly to our race ! 

1 O Father ! grace and virtue grant ; 
No more we wish, no more we want : 
To know, to serve thee, and to love, 
Is peace below, — is bliss above.

And, quiekened, would ascend to thee, 
Redeemed from sin, set free indeed 
Into thy glorious liberty. 

2 We cast behind fear, sin, and death ; 
With thee we seek the things above ; 
Our inmost souls thy Spirit breathe, 
Of power, of calmness, and of love : — 

3 The power, 'mid worldliness and sin, 
To do, in all, our Father's will ; 
With thee, the victory to win, 

And bid each tempting voice be still :

Which waiteth patiently and long : 
The love which faileth not, nor tires, 
Triumphant over every wrong. 

5 Thus thro' thy quickening Spirit, Lord, 
Thy perfect life in us reveal, 

And help us, as we live to God, 
Still more and more with man to feel.

Who serveth not another's will ; 
Whose armor is his honest thought, 
And simple truth his highest skill ; 

2 Whose passions not his masters are ; 
Whose soul is still prepared for death, 
Not tied unto the world with care 

Of prince's ear or vulgar breath ; 

3 Who God doth late and early pray 
More of his grace than goods to lend ; 
And walks with man, from day to day, 
As with a brother and a friend. 

4 This man is freed from servile bands 
Of hope to rise, or fear to fall ; 
Lord of himself, though not of lands. 
And having nothing, yet hath all.

But that the common lot of man 
Be nobly borne and glorified. 

3 I know I may not always keep 

My steps in places green and sweet, 
Nor find the pathway of the deep 
A path of safety to my feet ; 

4 But pray, that, when the tempest's breath 
Shall fiercely sweep my way about, 

I make not shipwreck of my faith 
In the unfathomed sea of doubt.

And walk upon the sea. 

2 Poor tremblers at his rougher wind, 

Why do we doubt him so ? 
Who gives the storm a path, will find 
The way our feet should go. 

3 A moment may his hand be lost, — 

Drear moment of delay, — 
We cry, Lord, help the tempest-tost ; 
And safe we're borne away. 

4 The Lord yields nothing to our fears, 

And flies from selfish care ; 
But comes himself where'er he hears 
The voice of loving prayer. 

5 O happy soul ! of faith divine, 

Thy victory, how sure ! 
The love that conquers all is thine. 
The patience to endure. 



6 Come, Lord of peace, our griefs dispel, 
And drive our fears away : 
'Tis thine to order all things well, 
And ours to bless the sway.

Holy Fortitude. 



Watts, 



1 Am I a soldier of the cross, 

A follower of the Lamb ? 
And shall I fear to own his cause, 
Or blush to speak his name ? 

2 Must I be carried to the skies 

On flowery beds of ease, 
While others fought to win the prize, 
And sailed through bloody seas ? 

3 Are there no foes for me to face ? 

Must not I stem the flood ? 
Is this vain world a friend to grace, 
To help me on to God ? 

4 Sure I must fight, if I would reign ; 

Increase my courage, Lord : 
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, 
Supported by thy word.

Holiness and Grace. 



Watts 



1 So let our lips and lives express 
The holy gospel we profess ; 

So let our works and virtues shine, 
To prove the doctrine all divine. 

2 Thus shall we best proclaim abroad 
The honors of our Saviour God, 
When the salvation reigns within, 
And grace subdues the power of sin. 

3 Our flesh and sense must be denied, 
Passion and envy, lust and pride ; 
While justice, temperance, truth, and 
Our inward piety approve. [love 

4 Religion bears our spirits up, 

While we expect that blessed hope, — 
The bright appearance of the Lord ; 
And faith stands leaning on his word. 

O^D. Charitable Judgment. SCOTT. 

1 All-seeing God, 'tis thine to know 
The springs whence wrong opinions flow ; 
To judge, from principles within, 
When frailty errs, and when we sin. 



2 Who among men, great Lord of all, 
Thy servant to his bar shall call, — 
Judge him, for modes of faith, thy foe, 
And doom him to the realms of woe ? 

3 Who with another's eye can read, 
Or worship by another's creed? 
Trusting thy grace, we form our own. 
And bow to thy commands alone. 

4 If wrong, correct ; accept, if right ; 
While, faithful, we improve our light, - 
Condemning none, but zealous still 
To learn and follow all thy will.

Welcome to Fellowship. 



Kelly. 



1 Come in, thou blessed of the Lord ; 
In Jesus' name we bid thee come : 
No more thy feet shall roam abroad, 
Henceforth a brother, welcome home. 

2 Those joys which earth cannot afford, 
We'll seek in fellowship to prove ; 
Joined in one spirit to the Lord, 
Together bound by mutual love.

ALFRETON. l.m 




3 And, while we pass this vale of tears, 
We'll make our joys and sorrows known ; 
We'll share each other's hopes and fears, 
And count a brother's cares our own. 

4 Once more our welcome we repeat ; 
Receive assurance of our love : 

Oh may we all together meet 
Around the throne of God above !

All Tilings Vain without Love. Watts. 



1 Had I the tongues of Greeks and Jews, 
And nobler speech than angels use, 

If love be absent, I am found 

Like tinkling brass, an empty sound. 

2 Were I inspired to preach and tell 
All that is done in heaven and hell, 
Or could my faith the world remove, 
Still I am nothing without love. 

8 Should I distribute all my store, 
To feed the cravings of the poor ; 
Or give my body to the flame, 
To gain a martyr's glorious name, — 



4 If love to God and love to men 
Be absent, all my hopes are vain : 
Nor tongues nor gifts nor fiery zeal 
The works of love can e'er fulfil. 



629. 



Christian Fellowship. Barbauld 



1 How blest the sacred tie that binds, 
In union sweet, according minds ! 
How swift the heavenly course they run, 
Whose hearts and faith and hopes are one 

2 To each, the soul of each how dear ! 
What jealous love, what holy fear ! 
How doth the generous flame within 
Refine from earth and cleanse from sin ! 

3 In glad accord they seek the place 
Where God reveals his awful face : 
How high, how strong, their rapture* 

swell, 
There's none but kindred souls can tell. 

4 Nor shall the glowing flame expire 
When droops at length frail nature's fire i 
For they shall meet in realms above, - - 
A heaven of joy, because of love.

Doing Good for Christ's Sake. CrosSWKLJ., 



1 Lord, lead the way the Saviour went, 

By lane and cell obscure ; 
And let our treasures still be spent, 
Like his, upon the poor. 

2 Like him, thro' scenes of deep distress, 

Who bore the world's sad weight, 
We, in their gloomy loneliness, 
Would seek the desolate. 

3 For thou hast placed us side by side 

In this wide world of ill ; 
And, that thy followers may be tried, 
The poor are with us still. 

4 Small are the offerings we can make; 

Yet thou hast taught us, Lord, 
If given for the Saviour's sake, 
They lose not their reward. 

DtJ J. • All Equal be/ore God. n. Mautineau. 

I All men are equal in their birth, 
Heirs of the earth and skies ; 
All men are equal when that earth 
Fades from their dying eyes. 



2 God meets the throngs who pay their vows 

In courts that hands have made, 
And hears the worshipper who bows 
Beneath the plantain shade. 

3 'Tis man alone who difference sees, 

And speaks of high and low ; 
And worships those, and tramples these, 
While the same path they go. 

4 Oh let man hasten to restore 

To all their rights of love ; 
In power and wealth exult no more ; 
In wisdom lowly move ! 

5 Ye great, renounce your earth-born pride , 

Ye low, your shame and fear : 
Live, as ye worship, side by side ; 
Your brotherhood revere.

1 Who is thy neighbor ? He whom thou 

Hast power to aid or bless ; 
Whose aching heart or burning brow 
Thy soothing hand may press. 

2 Thy neighbor ? 'Tis the fainting poor, 

Whose eye with want is dim : 
Oh enter thou his humble door, 
With aid and peace for him ! 

3 Thy neighbor ? He who drinks the cup 

When sorrow drowns the brim : 
With words of high, sustaining hope, 
Go thou and comfort him. 

■i Thy neighbor ? Pass no mourner by ; 
Perhaps thou canst redeem 
A breaking heart from misery ; 
Go share thy lot with him.

Dot). God a Refuge. 0. Wesley. 

1 Father, refuge of my soul, 
Let me to thy bosom fly, 
While the nearer waters roll, 
While the tempest still is high. 
Hide me, O my Father ! hide, 
Till the storm of life be past ; 
Safe into the haven guide ; 
Oh receive my soul at last ! 

2 Other refuge have I none ; 
Helpless hangs my soul on thee ; 
Leave, oh leave me not alone ! 
Still support and comfort me. 
All my trust on thee is stayed, 
All my help from thee I bring ; 
Cover my defenceless head 
With the shadow of thy wing. 



3 Wilt thou not regard my call ? 
Wilt thou not accept my prayer? 
Lo ! I sink, I faint, I fall ; 

Lo ! on thee I cast my care ; 
Reach me out thy gracious hand, 
While I of thy strength receive : 
Hoping against hope I stand ; 
Dying, and, behold ! I live. 

4 Thou, O God ! art all I want ; 
More than all in thee I find : 
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 
Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Thou of life the fountain art ; 
Freely let me take of thee ; 
Spring thou up within my heart : 
Rise to all eternity.

1 Lord, in thee I place my trust : 
Thou art my defence and tower ; 
Death thou treadest in the dust, 
O'er my soul it hath no power. 
Thou wilt save and strengthen me ; 
Give me of thy peace and might : 
Father, thou art unto me 
Resurrection, Life, and Light. 

2 Life of life, within me dwell; 
For the peace thy presence sheds 
Gives a joy no tongue can tell, 
Charms the pain from dying beds. 
I am safe within thine arm : 
Thanks, Father ! unto thee, 
Death can hurt not, nor alarm, — 
Thou hast given the victory

1 Lord, from whom all blessings flow, 
Perfecting the Church below, 
Steadfast may we cleave to thee ; 
Love the mystic union be ! 

Join our faithful spirits, — join 
Each to each, and all to thine ; 
Lead us through the paths of peace, 
On to perfect holiness. 

2 Sweetly may we all agree, 
Touched with softest sympathy : 
There is neither bond nor free, 
Great nor servile, Lord, in thee. 
Love, like death, hath all destroyed. 
Rendered all distinctions void : 
Names and sects and parties fall ; 
Thou, O God ! art all in all.

1 God's glory is a wondrous thing, 

Most strange in all its ways ; 
And, of all things on earth, least like 
What men agree to praise. 

2 Workman of God, oh lose not heart, 

But learn what God is like ! 
And, in the darkest battle-field, 
Thou shalt know where to strike. 

3 Oh blest is he to whom is given 

The instinct that can tell 
That God is on the field, when he 
Is most invisible ! 

4 And blest is he who can divine 

Where real right doth lie, 
And dares to take the side that seems 
Wrong to man's blindfold eye. 

5 Oh learn to scorn the praise of men ! 

Oh learn to lose with God ! 
For Jesus won the world through shame, 
And beckons thee his road.

His wounds a cure intend ; 
And, though he does not always smile, 
He loves unto the end.

The patience to subdue ; 
Oh call my wandering spirit home,

So I forsake not thee.

Confiding in his power to save ; 
For all do live to him.

Beyond the earth and sky, 
Beyond time's lone and dreaded brink. 
Their deathless dwellings lie.

The Fellowship of his Sufferings. 



1 Faint not, poor traveller, though the way 
Be rough, like that thy Saviour trod ; 
Though cold and stormy lower the day : 
This path of suffering leads to God. 

2 Nay, sink not, though from every limb 
Are starting drops of toil and pain : 
Thou dost but share the lot of Him 
With whom his followers are to reign. 

3 Christian, thy Friend, thy Master, prayed 
While dread and anguish shook his frame, 
Then met his sufferings undismayed : 
Wilt thou not strive to do the same ? 

1 Oh thinkest thou his Father's love 
Shone round him then with fainter rays 
Than now, when, throned all height above, 
Unceasing voices hymn his praise ? 

5 Go, sufferer ; calmly meet the woes 
Which God's own mercy bids thee bear; 
Then, rising as thy Saviour rose, 
Go, his eternal victory share.

And though the hopes of earth be gone, 
Yet are not ours the immortal years ? 

3 Father, forgive the heart that clings, 
Thus trembling, to the things of time ; 
And bid the soul, on angel wings, 
Ascend into a purer clime. 

4 There shall no doubts disturb its trust. 
No sorrows dim celestial love ; 

But these afflictions of the dust, 
Like shadows of the night, remove. 

5 That glorious life will well repay 
This life of toil and care and woe : 
O Father ! joyful on my way, 

To drink thy bitter cup, I go.

" Thy Will be Done." Charlotte Elliot. 



1 My God, my Father, while I stray, 
Far from my home, on life's rough way, 
Oh teach me from my heart to say, 

" Thy will, my God, be done " ! 

2 Though dark my path, and sad my lot, 
Let me be still, and murmur not ; 

But breathe the prayer, divinely taught, 
" Thy will, my God, be done." 

8 If thou shouldst call me to resign 
What most I prize, — it ne'er was mine, — 
I only yield thee what is thine : 
11 Thy will, my God, be done." 

4 If but my fainting heart be blest, 
With thy sweet spirit for its guest, 
O God ! to thee I leave the rest : 

" Thy will, my God, be done." 

5 Renew my will from day to day ; 
Blend it with thine, and take away 
Whate'er now makes it hard to say, 

" Thy will, my God, be done "

Humility. 



Enfield. 



1 Wherefore should man, frail child of 

clay, 
Who, from the cradle to the shroud, 
Lives but the insect of a day, — 
Oh why should mortal man be proud ? 

2 His brightest visions just appear, 
Then vanish, and no more are found ; 
The stateliest pile his pride can rear, 
A breath may level with the ground. 

3 By doubt perplexed, in error lost, 
With trembling step he seeks his way : 
How vain of wisdom's gift the boast ! 
Of reason's lamp, how faint the ray ! 

4 Follies and sins, a countless sum, 
Are crowded in life's little span : 
How ill, alas ! does pride become 
That erring, guilty creature, man ! 

5 God of my life, Father divine, 
Give me a meek and lowly mind : 
In modest worth, oh let me shine, 
And peace in humble virtue find !

ODU. The Promised Land. WATTS. 

1 There is a land of pure delight, 

Where saints immortal reign ; 
Infinite day excludes the night, 
And pleasures banish pain. 

2 There everlasting spring abides, 

And never-withering flowers : 
Death, like a narrow sea, divides 
This heavenly land from ours. 

8 Sweet fields, beyond the swelling flood, 
Stand dressed in living green ; 
So to the Jews old Canaan stood, 
While Jordan rolled between. 

4 But timorous mortals start and shrink 
To cross this narrow sea ; 
And linger, shivering on the brink, 
And fear to launch away. 



5 Oh could we make our doubts remove. 

Those gloomy doubts that rise, 
And see the Canaan, that we love. 
With unbeclouded eyes ; 

6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, 

And view the landscape o'er ! [flood, 
Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold 
Should fright us from the shore. 

DO i • The Heavenly Jerusalem, chr. Psalmiwt. 

1 Jerusalem, my happy home ! 

Name ever dear to me ! 
When shall my labors have an end 
In joy and peace and thee ? 

2 When shall these eyes thy heaven-bu>lt 

And pearly gates behold, — [walls 
Thy bulwarks with salvation strong, 
And streets of shining gold ?

GOO. The Future Worltx J. TAYLOR. 

1 There is a state unknown, unseen, 

Where parted souls must be ; 

And but a step doth lie between 

That world of souls and me. 

2 I see no light, I hear no sound, 

When midnight shades are spread ; 
Yet angels pitch their tents around 
And guard my quiet bed. 

3 The things unseen, O God ! reveal ; 

My spirit's vision clear, 
Till I shall feel and see and know 
That those I love are near. 

4 Impart the faith that soars on high, 

Beyond this earthly strife ; 
That holds sweet converse with the sky, 
And lives eternal life.

Each Day nearer Heaven. 



Anon. 



1 One sweetly solemn thought 
Comes to me o'er and o'er : 

Nearer my parting hour am I 
Than e'er I was before ; 

2 Nearer my Father's house, 
Where many mansions be ; 

Nearer the throne where Jesus reigns, — 
Nearer the crystal sea ; 

8 Nearer my going home, 
Laying my burden down, 
Leaving my cross of heavy grief, 
Wearing my starry crown ; 

4 Nearer that hidden stream, 
Winding through shades of night, 

Rolling its cold, dark waves between 
Me and the world of light. 

5 Father, to thee I cling : 
Strengthen my arm of faith ; 

Stay near me while my wayworn feet 
Press through the stream of death.

For ever with the Lord. MONTGOMEBT 



1 For ever with the Lord ! 
So, Father, let it be : 

Life from the dead is in that word. 
'Tis immortality. 

2 Here in the body pent, 
Absent from thee I roam ; 

Yet nightly pitch my moving tent 
A day's march nearer home. 

3 My Father's house on high ! 
Home of my soul, how near 

At times to faith's foreseeing eye 
Thy golden gates appear ! 

4 I hear at morn and even, 
At noon and midnight hour, 

The choral harmonies of heaven 
Earth's Babel-tongues o'erpower. 

5 And then I feel, that he, 
Remembered or forgot, 

The Lord, is never far from me, 
Though I perceive him not.

And purest pleasure reigns.

Fill every happy breast

1 Our heaven is everywhere, 
If we but love the Lord, 

Unswerving tread the narrow way, 
And ever shun the broad. 

2 'Tis where the trusting heart 
Bows meekly to its grief, 

Still looking up with earnest faith 
For comfort and relief. 

3 Wherever truth abides, 
Sweet peace is ever there : 

If we but love and serve the Lord. 
Our heaven is everywhere

t)04. Heaven a Rest. W. B. Tappan. 

1 There is an hour of peaceful rest 

To mourning wanderers given ; 
There is a joy for souls distressed, 
A balm for every wounded breast : 

'Tis found alone in heaven. 

2 There is a home for weary souls 

By sins and sorrows driven ; 
When tossed on life's tempestuous shoals, 
Where storms arise, and ocean rolls, 

And all is drear but heaven. 

3 There faith lifts up the tearless eye, 

The heart no longer riven ; 
And views the tempest passing by, 
Sees evening shadows quickly fly, 

And all serene in heaven. 

OOO. The Future Life. PLYMOUTH Col. 

1 There is a place of sacred rest, 

Far, far beyond the skies ; 
Where beauty smiles eternally, 
And pleasure never dies. 

2 Beyond the storm, beyond the gloom, 

Breaks forth the light of morn ; 



Bright beaming from the Father's house. 
To cheer the soul forlorn. 

3 The vision of that heavenly home 

Shall cheer the parting soul ; 
And o'er it, mounting to the skies, 
A tide of rapture roll. 

4 1 or there adieus are sounds unknown. 

Death frowns not on that scene ; 
But life and glorious beauty shine, 
Untroubled and serene. 



The Peace and Repose of Heaven. 

VV. B. Taitm*.

1 There is an hour of hallowed peace 

For those with cares oppressed, 
When sighs and sorrowing tears shall 
And all be hushed to rest. [cease, 

2 'Tis then the soul is freed from fears 

And doubts which here annoy ; 
Then they that oft had sown in tears 
Shall reap again in joy. 

3 There is a home of sweet repose, 

Where storms assail no more ; 
The stream of endless pleasure flows 
On that celestial shore.

The End of Life. Axdrew Reed. 



1 Titere is an hour, when I must part 

With all I hold most dear ; 
And life, with its best hopes, will then 
As nothingness appear. 

2 There is an hour, when I must lie 

Low on affliction's bed, 
And anguish, pain, and tears become 
My bitter daily bread. 

3 There is an hour, when I must sink 

Beneath the stroke of death, 
And yield to Him, who gave it first, 
My struggling vital breath. 

I Saviour ! then, in all my need, 
Be near, be near to me ; 
And let my soul, in steadfast faith, 
Find life and heaven in thee

1 All as God wills ! who wisely heeds 

To give or to withhold, 
And knoweth more of all my needs 
Than all my prayers have told. 

2 Enough, that blessings undeserved 

Have marked my erring track ; 
That, wheresoe'er my feet have swerved, 
Thy chastening turned me back ; 

3 That more and more a providence 

Of love is understood, 
Making the springs of time and sense 
Bright with eternal good ; 

4 That death seems but a covered way 

Which opens into light, 
Wherein no blinded child can stray 
Beyond the Father's sight. 

5 Xo longer forward or behind 

I look, in hope or fear, 
But grateful take the good I find, 
God's blessing, now and here.

1 God of eternity ! from thee 
Did infant Time his being draw : 
Moments and days and months and years 
Revolve by thine unvaried law. 

2 Silent and swill they glide away : 
Steady and strong the current flows, 
Lost in eternity's wide sea, 

The boundless gulf from which it rose. 

3 With it the thoughtless sons of men 
Before the rapid stream are borne 
On to their everlasting home, 
Whence not one soul can e'er return. 

4 Yet, while the shore on either side 
Presents a gaudy, flattering show, 
We gaze, in fond amusement lost, 
Nor think to what a world we go. 

6 Great Source of wisdom, teach our hearts 
To know the price of every hour, 
That time may bear us on to joys 
Beyond its measure and its power. 



b70. The Better Land. Anon. 

1 There is a land mine eye hath seen 
In visions of enraptured thought, 

So bright that all which spreads between 
Is with its radiant glory fraught, — 

2 A land upon whose blissful short 
There rests no shadow, falls no stain ; 
There those who meet shall part no more, 
And those long parted meet again. 

3 Its skies are not like earthly skies, 
With varying hues of shade and light; 
It hath no need of suns to rise, 

To dissipate the gloom of night. 

4 There sweeps no desolating wind 
Across that calm, serene abode : 
The wanderer there a home may find 
Within the paradise of God.

How calm, how rich the twilight glow !

Howe'er they please the eye or ear, 

Will quickly fade and fly ; 
Of earthly glory faint the blaze, 
And soon the transitory rays 

In endless darkness die.

Their honors time and death defy, 
And round the throne of heaven on high

When I wandered, thou hast found me; 

When I doubted, sent me light ; 
Still thine arm has been around me,

Wholly rest upon thine arm ; 
Follow wholly thy directing,

Still my footsteps, Father, viewing, 

Keep me ever at thy side.

Sealed with his Almighty Name,

Through their dear Redeemer's might, 
More than conquerors they stand.

And for ever from their eyes 
God shall wipe away the tear.

Let thy whole strength go to each : 
Let no future dreams elate thee ;

Joys are lent thee here below : 
Take them readily when given ;

One will fade as others greet thee, —

Psalm of Life. Lonqfellotc 



1 Tell me not, in mournful numbers, 

Life is but an empty dream ; 
For the soul is dead that slumbers, 
And things are not what they seem. 

2 Life is real, life is earnest, 

And the grave is not its goal : 
Dust thou art, to dust returnest, 
"Was not spoken of the soul. 

3 Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, 

Is our destined end and way ; 
But to act, that each to-morrow 
Find us further than to-day. 

4 Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant \ 

Let the dead Past bury its dead : 
Act, act in the living Present, 
Heart within and God o'erhead. 

5 Let us, then, be up and doing, 

With a heart for any fate ; 
Still achieving! still pursuing, 
Learn to labor and to wait.

1 Who, when darkness gathered o'er us, 

Foes and death on every side, 
Clothed in glory walked before us, 

Leading on like Israel's guide ? 
'Twas Jehovah ! He, appearing, 

Showed his banner far and wide. 

2 When the trump of war was sounding, 

'Twas the Lord who took the field : 
He, his people then surrounding, 

Made the strong in battle yield. 
To our fathers, few in number, 

He was armor, strength, and shield. 

3 In the God of armies trusting, 

'Mid their weakness, void of fear ; 
Soon they felt their bonds were bursting, 

Saw the dawning light appear. 
Clouds dissolving in the sunbeams 

Showed the land of freedom near. 



7 ' 9 

Hark ! we hear to heaven ascending, 

From the voices of the free, 
Hallelujahs, sweetly blending 

With the song of Liberty. 
Power Almighty, we the victory 

Ever will ascribe to thee. 



the olive bearing, 



5 Lo ! the dove, 

Plants it on our country's shore ; 
Every breast its branch is wearing 

Where the buckler shone before. 
Praise the Eternal ! he is reigning ! 

Praise him, praise him, evermore ! 

OOO. Safety in God. Montgomery. 

Call the Lord thy sure salvation, 

Rest beneath the Almighty's shade ; 
In his secret habitation 

Dwell, nor ever be dismayed. 
There no tumult can alarm thee, 

Thou shalt dread no hidden snare ; 
Guile nor violence shall harm thee 

In eternal safeguard there.

National Hymn. 



S. F. Smith. 



1 My country, 'tis of thee, 
Sweet land of liberty, — 

Of thee I sing : 
Land where my fathers died, 
Land of the pilgrim's pride, 
From every mountain side 

Let freedom ring ! 

2 My native country, thee, — 
Land of the noble free, — 

Thy name I love : 
I love thy rocks and rills, 
Thy woods and templed hills : 
My heart with rapture thrills 

Like that above. 



Let music swell the breeze, 
And ring from all the trees 

Sweet freedom's song ! 
Let mortal tongues awake ; 
Let all that breathe partake ; 
Let rocks their silence break, — 

The sound prolong ! 



4 Our fathers' God, to thee. 
Author of liberty, — 

To thee we sing : 
Long may our land be bright 
With freedom's holy light ; 
Protect us by thy might, 

Great God, our King.

When the wild tempests rave, 
Ruler of winds and wave, 
Do thou our country save 

By thy great might. 

2 For her our prayer sfcall rise 
To God, above the skies ; 

On him we wait : 
Thou who art ever nigh, 
Guarding with watchful eye, 
To thee aloud we cry, 

God save the state !

The valleys laugh and sing, 
Forests and mountains ring, 
The plains their tribute bring, 

The streams rejoice. 

2 Yea, bless his holy name, 
And joyous thanks proclaim 

Through all the earth : 
To glory in your lot 
Is comely ; but be not 
God's benefits forgot 

Amid your mirth. 

3 The God of harvest praise ; 
Hands, hearts, and voices raise, 

With sweet accord : 
From field to garner throng, 
Bearing your sheaves along, 
And in your harvest song 

Bless ye the Lord,

1 O Thou whose presence went before 
Our fathers in their weary way, 

As with thy chosen moved of yore 
The fire by night, the cloud by day ! — 

2 When, from each temple of the free, 
A nation's song ascends to heaven, 
Most holy Father, unto thee 

Now let our humble prayer be given. 

8 Sweet peace be here, and hope and love 
Be round us as a mantle thrown, 
As unto thee, supreme above, 
The knee of prayer is bowed alone. 

4 And grant, O Father ! that the time 
Of earth's deliverance may be near, 
When every land and tongue and clime 
The message of thy love shall hear ; 

6 When, smitten as with fire from heaven, 
The bondman's chain shall sink in dust, 
And to his fettered soul be given 
The glorious freedom of the just.

1 O Lord of hosts, Almighty King ! 
Behold the sacrifice we bring ! 

To every arm thy strength impart, 
Thy spirit shed through every heart. 

2 Wake in our breasts the living fires, 
The holy faith that warmed our sires : 
Thy hand hath made our nation free ; 
To die for her is serving thee. 

3 Be thou a pillared flame to show 
The midnight snare, the silent foe ; 
And, when the battle thunders loud, 
Still guide us in its moving cloud. 

4 God of all nations, Sovereign Lord, 
In thy dread name we draw the sword ; 
We lift the starry flag on high 

That fills with light our stormy sky. 

5 From treason's rent, from murder's stain, 
Guard thou its folds till peace shall reign ; 
Till fort and field, till shore and sea, 
Join our loud anthem, Praise to thee !

Her sweet communion, solemn vows, 
Her hymns of love and praise.

1 When, driven by oppression's rod, 
Our fathers fled beyond the sea, 
Their care was first to honor God, 
And next to leave their children free. 

2 Above the forest's gloomy shade 
The altar and the school appeared : 
On that, the gifts of faith were laid ; 

In this, their precious hopes were reared. 

3 The altar and the school still stand, 
The sacred pillars of our trust ; 
And freedom's sons shall fill the land 
When we are sleeping in the dust. 

4 Before thine altar, Lord, we bend, 
With grateful song and fervent prayer ; 
For thou, who wast our fathers' friend, 
Wilt make our offspring still thy care.

Encompassed by the earth's green breast,

Memorials of their higher birth, 

And whispering breezes o'er them sing 
Some requiem for the lost of earth. 

3 If earth were all, how sad to leave 
What never, never can return ! 
But oh ! if opening heaven receive, 
How vain the parted shade to mourn.

The annals of each coming race, 

May Faith, Hope, Love, for ever meet, 
To crown and bless the sylvan place !

Then stretched the plain to where the sky

The sons of earth are waking 

To penitential tears ; 
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean 

Brings tidings from afar, 
Of nations in commotion, 

Prepared for Zion's war. 

2 Rich dews of grace come o'er us 

In many a gentle shower, 
And brighter scenes before us 

Are opening every hour ; 
Each cry to heaven going, 

Abundant answers brings, 
And heavenly gales are blowing, 

With peace upon their wings. 

3 Blest river of salvation, 

Pursue thy onward way ; 
Flow thou to every nation, 

Nor in thy richness stay : 
Stay not, till all the lowly 

Triumphant reach their home ; 



Stay not, till all the holy 
Proclaim the Lord has come

Rejoicing in thy favor,

"With all thy saints above, 
And tell the joyful story 
Of thy redeeming love. 

2 Thy gracious love possessing 

In all my pilgrim road,

In thy divine abode.

My every conflict o'er, 
My spirit shall adore thee, 

For ever, evermore.

" Remember thy Creator." S. F. Smith 



1 "Remember thy Creator," 

While youth's fair spring is bright, 
Before thy cares are greater, 

Before comes age's night : 
"While yet the sun shines o'er thee, 

While stars the darkness cheer, 
"While life is all before thee, 

Thy great Creator fear. 

2 "Remember thy Creator," 

Ere life resigns its trust, 
Ere sinks dissolving nature, 

And dust returns to dust ; 
Before with God, who gave it, 

The spirit shall appear : 
He cries, who died to save it, 

" Thy great Creator fear."

1 Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of 

prayer, 
That calls me from a world of care, 
And bids me at my Father's throne 
Make all my wants and wishes known ! 

2 In seasons of distress and grief 
My soul has often found relief, 
And oft escaped the tempter's snare, 
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer. 

i Z I . God — our Father. S. S. II. Book. 

1 Great God, and wilt thou condescend 
To be my Father and my Friend, — 

I but a child, and thou so high, 
The Lord of earth and air and sky ? 

2 Art thou my Father? Let me be 
A meek, obedient child to thee ; 
And try, in every deed and thought, 
To serve and please thee as I ought. 

3 Art thou my Father ? I'll depend 
Upon the care of such a Friend ; 
And only wish to do and be 
Whatever seemeth "ood to thee. 



4 Art thou my Father ? Then, at last, 
When all my days on earth are past, 
Send down, and take me, in thy love, 
To be thy better child above. 

I JuLi* Morning Hymn. For a Cliild. Pierpoht 

1 O God ! I thank thee that the night 
In peace and rest hath passed away; 
And that I see, in this fair light, 

My Father's smile, that makes it day. 

2 Be thou my Guide, and let me live 
As under thine all-seeing eye ; 
Supply my wants, my sins forgive, 
And make me happy when I die. 

{ £i*j» Evening Hymn. For a Child. Pierpomt, 

1 Another day its course hath run, 
And still, O God ! thy child is blest ; 
For thou hast been by day my sun, 
And thou wilt be by night my rest. 

2 Sweet sleep descends, my eyes to close ; 
And now, when all the world is still, 

I give my body to repose, — 
My spirit to my Father's will.

Teaching of Children. L. E. La>*do>" 

1 While yet the youthful spirit bears 
The image of its God within, 
And uneffaced that beauty wears, 
Which may too soon be stained by sin ; 



2 Then is the time for faith and love 

To take in charge their precious care, — 
Teach the young heart to look above, 
Teach the young lips to speak in prayer. 

3 The infant prayer, the infant hymn, 
Within the darkened soul will rise, 
When age's weary eye is dim, 

Or sorrow's shadow round us lies. 

4 The infant hymn is heard again, 

The infant prayer is breathed once more ; 
Reclasping thus the broken chain, 
We turn to all we loved before.

1 O Thou who sendest sun and rain 
On wilderness and peopled plain ! 
Shed thou thy grace on heart and tongue, 
And bless our teaching of the young. 



2 We ask for no reward of praise, 
No mere success in outward ways ; 
But may we, Lord, successful be 
In leading these young souls to thee. 



Grant thou our hands the seed to sow 
Which to eternal life shall grow ; 
Without thine aid our toil must fail, 
But with it, Lord, we shall prevail.

Now condescend, Almighty King, 

To bless this little throng ; 
And kindly listen, while we sing 

Our pleasant evening song. 
We come to own thy power divine 

That watches o'er our days : 
For this our feeble voices join 

In hymns of cheerful praise. 

Before thy sacred footstool see, 

We join in humble prayer, 
A happy little family, 

To ask thy tender care ! 
May we in safety sleep to-night, 

From every danger free ; 
Because the darkness and the light 

Are both alike to thee ! 



3 And when the rising sun displays 

His cheerful beams abroad, 
Then shall our morning hymns of prais«

Oh smile upon this little band, 

And join our hearts in love !

To mansions in the skies,

And storms of sorrow fall, 
May I but safely reach my home, 
My God, my heaven, my all !

If e'er his faith grow dim,

Ere his task was done : 
Count not lost thy fleeting moments ;

Gather round thee here, 
And the storm above thee lowering

And a peaceful rest awaits thee 

When thy work is done.

With a deep and strong beseeching, —

3 Not to ease and aimless quiet 

Doth the inward answer tend ; 
But to works of love and duty, 
As our being's end :

Of a spirit which within 
Wrestles with familiar evil 
And besetting sin ;

1 A mighty fortress is our God, 
A bulwark never failing ; 

Our helper he amid the flood 
Of mortal ills prevailing. 

For still our ancient foe 

Doth seek to work us woe ; 

His craft and power are great ; 

And, armed with cruel hate, 
On earth is not his equal. 



Luther's Psalm. Tr. by F. n. Hedob. 

3 And though this world, with devils filled, 

Should threaten to undo us, 
We will not fear ; for God hath willed 

His truth to triumph through us, 
The Prince of Darkness grim, — 
We tremble not for him : 
His rage we can endure, 
For, lo ! his doom is sure : 

One little word shall fell him. 



Did we in our own strength confide, 
Our striving would be losing ; 

Were not the right man on our side, 
The man of God's own choosing. 

Dost ask who that may be ? 

Christ Jesus : it is he ; 

Lord Sabaoth his name, 

From age to age the same, 
And he must win the battle. 



4 That word above all earthly powers- 
No thanks to them — abideth; 

The spirit and the gifts are ours, 
Through Him who with us sideth. 

Let goods and kindred go, 

This mortal life also : 

The body they may kill, 

God's truth abideth still ; 
His kingdom is for ever.

Not what 1 would, Lord ! I offer thee ; A | las ! - but | what - 1 | can. 

2 Father Almighty, who hast made me man, 

And bade me look to heaven, for | thou - art | there, 
Accept my sacri | fice - and | hum - ble | prayer. 

3 Four things which are not in thy treasury, 

I lay before thee, Lord, with | this - pe | tition: 

My nothingness, my wants, my | sins, - and | my - con | trition. 

Inward Pence. 

1 As earth's pageant passes by, Let reflection | turn -thine | eye 
Inward, and observe thy breast: There a | lone -dwells | sol -id | rest. 

2 That's a close, immured tower Which can mock all | hos - tile | power : 
To thyself a tenant be, And in | hab - it | safe - and | free. 

3 Say not that this house is small, Girt up in a | nar - row | wall : 
In a cleanly, sober mind, Heaven it | self- full | room -doth | find. 

4 The infinite Creator can Dwell in it; and | may -not | man? 

Here, content, make thy abode With thy | self - and | with -tby | God.
